Margaux snails

We created our Hélicicole farm (name given to a snail farm) in September 2014. We have parks with around 200 gastropods by the name of "Hélix Aspersa Maxima" more commonly called "Gros Gris".
Our snails are born and grow on the farm in outdoor parks filled with plants. Maintained manually, this green carpet serves both as shelter but also as food, in addition to cereals and minerals guaranteed to be GMO-free.
Located in the South of Alsace, Largitzen is surrounded by forests, meadows as well as beautiful horned animals (cattle). It is distant about thirty kilometers from Saint Louis, and substantially as much from Mulhouse, Montbéliard as well as Belfort.
