Snail meat is a good source of protein. It is rich in iron and calcium, but low in fat and cholesterol compared to other animal protein sources like poultry, pigs, cow and goat. They are environmental-friendly, because, unlike pigs and poultry, neither the snail nor its droppings smell offensively. Snails can also be reared in the backyard.
We breed and raise snails naturally on pasture / free range method to produce our high quality snail meat for events. 18-months old snail breeders are suitable for people who would like to start their own snail farms. We deliver year round on our weekly route to stores, cold rooms, markets, top class restaurants and individuals.
Our snails are several heritage breeds including the forest snail or giant African snail (archachatina archachatina), the forest giant snail (archachatina marginata) and the (archachatina fulica).
We have been selectively breeding our snails for many years to produce a snail that pastures well in our natural environment with excellent taste and flavour. With each generation, we breed the best of the best and eat the rest. Gradually over time this results-in the improvement of the breeders, strong, fertlie and prolific snails adapted to our climate and pasture grazing ability to name a few of the traits we select for reproduction purposes.
