In spring 2013 we started to breed edible snails. The species is the gray snail Helix aspersa maxima, and Helix aspersa muller. We took part in a course organised by professional breeders of edible snails, and then we prepared everything that is necessary for the production. We bought a snail colony counting 13 000 snails and we started breeding them in February.
We have rooms where we wake them up, where they breed and where young snails grow up, as well as a green area (greenhouse, pen) where they are let out to grow more and where they are picked. Our snail farm is located in Ksawerow near Lodz. The theory does not reflect the practice. The books read, the courses attended may help, but direct experience is what counts most. This experience enabled us to succeed in hatching and breeding. See how our farm is developing. You are also invited to buy our breeding snails and establish business relations with us.
We offer you training and help at every stage. We guarantee all our customers resale (purchase) of the bred snails.
This is the most demanding type of breeding but also the most profitable one, it requires technical equipment and facilities (breeding rooms with access to running water, sewage system, ventilation and heating). The breeding starts in February and includes all stages: fertilization of eggs, hatching, young snails growing to ripe snails.
This type of breeding omits the difficult and long period of reproduction. It requires technical equipment and facilities – a room with a temperature of approx. 20 degrees C., where the snail eggs bought from us are kept until hatching. After hatching, the snails „go” to special tunnels or halls where they are fattened.
This type of breeding requires less time and effort. The 1-week snails bought from us must be let go into tunnels or halls where they grow up. When the weather is right (after 15 May), the snails are let into parks where they grow further until the harvest time
