H and I watched a Landline program a couple of months ago on snail farming. There were a few backyard setups and some on small farms. It looked like a very interesting and sustainable way of earning a few dollars. When we looked into it, it still looked promising but we decided it might be too much work for us at this stage. We are just starting our retirement and don't want to go back to work. But I thought others might be interested. I think it would make a good simple life business, using your own property.

If you're interested in earning some money from home, here are some links that might get you thinking about snails. BTW, I have no association at all with these businesses.

If that was Sonja Begg's farm, she used to belong to my Gardening club and I had to think up reverse gardening practices to provide ideal conditions for her snails. It was fun, in a way.

Remember that asbestos, the cane toad, feeding dead animal carcasses to herbivores, and compact fluorescent light bulbs all seemed a good idea at the time...

yes Lyn, it is sonya. She seems to be a very switched on woman.

I saw that original Landline program and a repeat recently. It looks great, but, I like snails sautéed in garlic and butter so much I wonder if I'd eat all the profits!!! :tongue:
