    I can’t find enough words to say how delighted l was… and how well received l felt at Inisscargot After moving from Spain, 30 years ago, I finally found a company, producing “top notch” scargot here in the heart of Cavan.
    But not only nice scargot…, but wonderful ones and organically grown…., what else can anyone ask for!! Furthermore l had the chance to see by myself the way everything is done…, which is very reassuring. Well done man !!!!
    I wish you Peter, and your team the best of luck. My wish for you (& me) is to be able to see the availability of the snails in the regular supermarkets.

    I recently attended a training course at Inis Escargot. I was highly impressed by the whole event. Peter’s ambition and passion for the industry was quite humbling. A very impressive enterprise, started and turned into a success with practically no guidance. Inis Escargot is just warming up for bigger and better things to come.

    It’s a unique experience and highly recommend a visit to this snail farm. Peter was very friendly and knowlegable about all things “snail” and eager to show us around and kids loved the experience even got to visit some of the sucklers on the farm too! Fantastic day out. Wish you every success!

    The farm demonstrates a great visual on the development of integrating the existing suckler farm with the layout of the snail farming infrastructure. Excellent practical approach to experience first hand how a farm or small grounds can transform into this exciting new form of farming in Ireland. It is clear to be seen that Peter has a passion for what he does and wants to share his knowledge and experience in snail farming. It is definitely worth a visit to Inis Escargot

    A fantastic learning experience at Inis Escargot Farm . Peter has worked hard over the years to fine tune the processes in snail farming, has shown success with snail sales and now he has devised and is willing to share the blueprint for others considering this type of farming. Peter gave me a great starting point to get my farm going. Sustainable farming and healthy ethical food production is our future and Inis Escargot is a fine example of this. Snails also taste delicious which initially surprised me. I recommend the Inis Escargot training course. I will be returning.

    Had the opportunity to go on the course at inis escargot and and delighted I did. Found Peter a mind of information and extremely helpful. Got a true insight into snail farming. Came away with a lot of information and an eagerness to hopefully set up my own snail farm. For anyone thinking about going into this type of farming I would definitely recommend Peter. Continued success to inis escargot
