A mother and daughter farm based in rural East Kent, the Garden of England. We specialise in selling succulent live edible snails that live outdoors on our vegetable plot in the summer feasting on fresh vegetables and fruit.

Snails have been part of our diet for thousands of years and came to Britain with the Romans. They don't store fat and remain a cheap nutritious source of protein, minerals and vitamins for people all over the world. Look at our recipe page to find out how to cook snails using local cider.

Lots of people grow their own food. You can grow your own escargots too. We run courses for people who want to grow their own escargots and learn how to cook them.
