During my studies I was looking for some alternatives to earn some extra money. I came across an article on snail business in a newspaper. It was then that I came up with an idea of starting up our adventure with snails. After scrutinizing all the pros and cons we decided to set up a small snail farm. What encouraged us most into this business was apparently low initial investment and high chances for of quick profit. Although the reality did not turn out to be so easy we decided not to give up and stick to our plans. Thanks to our unwavering enthusiasm and great engagement we have managed to turn our idea into successful and profitable family-run business.
Our bonds with animals are quite strong due to our education. My wife and I graduated from Warsaw University of Life Science - SGGW in 2001(Veterinary Medicine). After studies we were getting our practical experience at farms in Switzerland (for almost two years) and in England (for a couple of months). We cooperate with farmers and snail growers in Poland and abroad. At present we are running a snail farm. We specialize in Helix aspersa Muller. Additionally, we have started snail processing business aimed at introducing new snail-based products into the market.
At the beginning we had to face many problems and challenges. We were not under supervision of any professional breeder so we were naturally forced to check our knowledge and experience by trial and error. Sometimes discrepancies between our expectations and reality were enormous. However, we managed to overcome all initial problems and now after a few years of turning knowledge into practice we are stronger and skillful enough to provide new people with professional advice and assistance.
We would like to make you familiar with short descriptions of snail farming cycles and invite you to cooperate with us.
