Presentation de of the snails farm

Based in Saint-Martin-Choquel, in the "Boulonnais", the land of Faience, l'Escargotiere du Choquel opened its doors in May 2001. The snails farm raises gray large snails (Helix aspersa maxima). The breeding season begins in March by the reproductive phase, May the spat are "dropped" in outdoor parks to be picked up in October, to cook them in a laboratory CE, for your pleasure. The sale takes place on the farm, or at gastronomic fairs, and several local stores.
