Feeding time at the farm. Our snails love their feed which gives them all the grain and nutrients they need (including calcium to grow and repair their shells). They also enjoy munching on the leaves of some plants, such as horseradish, that we grow in the tunnels here @HelixSnails to supplement their diet.

Slow Growin’

Our family-run farm was started back in 2015. We are situated near the lovely village of Ballinaclash, Co. Wicklow where we have been welcomed and supported from the beginning - they even included us as a feature of the annual ‘Clash Fest’. Building the farm was a community effort from the start. We are eternally grateful to the friends, family and neighbours who pitched in to help get us up and running. Well, running might be an overstatement...it was really more of a snail’s pace. As with any new business, we encountered problems along the way but found ways to adapt and overcome. Looking back from where we are now - our most successful year yet, with an abundance of snails to sell - it is great to think how far we have come and how much have enjoyed all the lessons learned. It has been slow to start, but so worth it!
