Dorset Snails is a family run business, located in the beautiful village of Witchampton in Dorset. We started snail farming in 2006 with one intention, to farm and supply the tastiest, freshest snails in the UK. We supply a range of eateries that include country pubs, hotels and Michelin star restaurants.

Due to the UK's cool climate our farming method is indoor, allowing temperature and humidity to be fully controlled. This means we can obtain eggs from our breeder snails on a more regular basis, having a new batch of snails ready for our customers every week throughout the year. To ensure the finest quality, our snails are cleansed over a course of five days to free them from impurities. We send them to our customers blanched, arriving in the chefs' kitchens the next day.

As we expanded our operation it became necessary for us to become an approved business with the Foods Standards Agency. This was a lengthy procedure but very worthwhile as it assures our customers of quality and biological security.
