Visit Careship farm to meet our slimy snails. Our tours are intended to be an educational and interesting visit where you will find out about the life cycle, breeding and harvesting processes as well as social farming. Depending on the season, you might have a tasting of snail meat and pate.
Please wear comfortable outdoor clothing, sensible shoes and hat, and bring a camera if you like. We can provide morning or afternoon tea at extra cost.
Please note: our workshop “Introduction to Care Farming” is more in depth and intended for those who want to set up a care farm. We are also designing a workshop for those intending to set up a snail farm themselves.
Farm visits do not run on a regular basis, but only if there is sufficient interest. Please contact us to book for a 30min – 1 hour visit. Each workshop and tour requires a minimum of 5 people.
