Snail farming/ heliciculture/ heliculture is the process of raising land snails specifically for human use.
You could either use their flesh as edible escargot or, more recently, to obtain snail slime for use in cosmetics and snail eggs for human consumption as a type of caviar.
Snails multiply really fast, laying up to 100 eggs in one go. Because they are hermaphrodites (have both male and female sexual organs), they get to mate easily throughout the year.
If they are bred well, they should start to reach market size from six to twelve months, although some farmers like to leave theirs for much longer.
The offered snails are available for delivery nationwide.
