The history of our farm dates back to 2017. Hnatuk Nicholas the mechanical engineer by education and the entrepreneur by vocation, has repeatedly wondered what business he should set up in his native village that he can often come there with his family and visit his parents. Once, having some rest among the close group of friends, Nicholas was advised to try to breed the grape snails by one of them. There were all the needed conditions and partially the infrastructure for starting such special production. Having learned the experience of Poland and Lithuania we decided that the grape snails would not be very profitable for the industrial manufacturing. We also discovered that the edible Mediterranean Snail Helix Aspersa Muller is in demand and its price is quite higher. The idea of creating the Snails Family Farm was the great startup. We went to Poland to obtain the practical experience and after that we went to Lithuania in order to visit snails’ farm there. The following year we successfully completed the reproduction and closed the entire cycle of the entire production cycle.
We’ve collected the 4 tons of high quality snails in 2018. Our business has become very interesting for us, and we see the perspectives and ways of development. We plant our fields with 10 tons of snails in 2019 as the level of profitability depends on the volume.
