Welcome to our shop. Come on in!
This is the place to buy live edible snails Helix aspersa maxima (gros gris) if you want to cook snails, rear your own snails for the table, keep snails as pets or buy a present for a snail fan. Hatched eggs can be ordered now for delivery in April ready for the new season.
This is one of the very few snail farms in England where you can buy fresh live Helix aspersa maxima ready prepared for cooking. If you are an enthusiastic cook you can prepare your own delicious snails for your guests in any way you choose. Please ask if you would like a copy of our cooking instructions. Our book 'Molluscs and Me' has lots of recipes sandwiched between the chapters.
If you want to rear your own snails at home then why not sign up for a course. We can supply you with breeders, information and snail food to grow your own.
Our mini snail farms make the perfect educational gift, providing an ideal way for children to learn about looking after living things. Everyone is growing their own food so why not give a snail smallholder starter pack or a Grow Your Own Escargots pack as the perfect gift?
We also have beautiful empty shells available for sale to collectors and artists on the understanding that they are not sterile and not suitable for food use. Please email with your requirements.
Helix aspersa muller (petit gris), live edible snails, prepared ready to cook. This is an opportunity for you to buy live snails in bulk by the kilo. 1 means 1 kilo and with petit gris you get 10 dozen approximately to the kilo. I can also supply 5 kilo bags - email me for a discount.
I don't grow petit gris so I have bought some for you but these snails are farmed out of doors in the way that I rear my snails.
Cooking instructions available if required.
The postage quoted is for overnight delivery in UK. For overseas orders to Ireland and the rest of Europe please make contact by email. For import to the USA, customers need a permit from the USDA before ordering and the USDA is not currently allowing any live snails to be imported. There are similar prohibitions on export to many other countries outside Europe.
