We specialise in rearing Helix Aspersa Muller snail and our farm is located in the beautiful village of Garryhill, Co. Carlow, Ireland
We have been researching snail production methods for the last five years and we are the only Research and Development Center for this type of farming in Ireland.
OUR FARMING METHOD
Our snails are nurtured in an outdoor field which allows them to grow in a natural, free-range environment. Irish weather conditions with high rainfall and mild temperature is conducive to breeding snails in open pastures, producing a free-range product. The benefits of breeding snails in natural conditions far outweigh indoor production methods. The free-range breeding system allows production of healthy snails which offers a significant advantage over snails that are collected and bred in enclosure environments.
There are two ways to start farming snails in Ireland: by breeding (full cycle: Dec- Sept) or by fattening baby snails (half cycle: April- Sept).
