So, we grow snails in virgin land. To improve soil fertility we use sedation method, and to make the land even more productive we grow agricultural plant Perko there.
In the fields, drip irrigation (micro spinners) is used, thus we achieve an adjacent rain and fog effect. This has a beneficial effect on JIFFY snails when they wake up after a day’s sleep, drink water and eat moistened feed.
Water supplied for irrigation from the well undergoes the necessary analyses. We carefully ensure that all indicators are normal, and pay special attention to the iron content.
The sloping terrain of our farm is also a favourable factor for snail breeding: moisture does not stagnate, and during the rains, all the waste products from snails are additionally washed off.
The feeding area and the breeding room are in the same area. Filling and packaging also take place here. Due to this, we have minimized the impact of logistics processes. For molluscs, such conditions create less stress (the quality of snails packed before bedtime is much higher).
All stages are fully controlled at one location and help to reduce the loss of snails due to death.
In the breeding room there is a special area for employees who monitor the conditions of breeding`s around the clock.
540 m²The breeding room
430 m² For reproduction and washing.
In the future, we strive for energy independence. The terrain of the land area and the southern slope make it possible to set alternative energy sources for hot water and solar collectors.
Also, we plan to make a basement. The floor there will be uncovered soil, where earth absorbs moisture. Thus, the basement temperature should be maintained in winter and summer at 9-15°С, where we can store snails in anabiosis with the least stress for them.
