Farms and counting
The best known and most often cultivated species are Helix Aspersa and Helix Pomatia.
The last few years, interest in snail farming has increased significantly. Snail farming is a delicate process requiring careful research and management. The potential farmer must have a fallow field and secure water supply. It is essential to conduct a soil and water analysis in order to validate that both are suitable for snail farming. According to the European legislation, the farms must be licensed and registered by the health regulatory agencies. Fereikos, provides seminars by appointment and offers voluntary internships at existing snail farms. Fereikos also helps potential farmers build business plans for snail farming.
