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. Adults enjoy looking after snails too so why not give them a snail smallholder starter pack as a 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.
If you are having a dinner party and want to serve freshly cooked delicious escargots to your guests, this is the pack for you:
2 dozen cooked succulent snails
Garlic, shallot and parsley for the garnish. Just add butter.
2 dozen presentation shells to make your meal look as good as it tastes
a copy of Molluscs and Me: my book about Slow Summer Snail Farm with recipes between the chapters.
The pack is sent out by overnight courier in insulated packaging. We use recyclable sheep's wool insulation to reduce our environmental impact. When the pack arrives you can compost the wool or put it round your small plants to protect them from slugs.
