Escargot Farming (snails)

My Father in Law, R.V. Dick Johnson and I would like to exchange
information with those interested Heliciculture ( escargot snail farming).

Dick just returned from a trip sponsored by the United States Government
to Western Europe.  He was sent there for a month to show them how to
raise, market and ship snails.  He is considered one of the foremost
authorities on the subject in the United States  He has a lot of
information to share with those interested.

We have been raising snails both indoors and outdoors for the past ten
years.  It has become a good business for us.  We have experience with
both greenhouse and outdoor pen growing environments.

If you are considering starting your own growing operation, please e-mail
us with your questions. 

Should you want us to send you materials, our e-mail address is 
frescargot@aol.com.  Or visit our home page which includes some technical
information as well as an anatomy of a snail at
We look forward to hearing from you.
