Although grossly underrated, the market opportunity for snail farming is huge. One attractive feature of snail farming is that in terms of cost and time, it is a low-risk business usually classified as a micro-livestock.
It does not require much space to set up, neither does it produce an offensive odour that will disturb neighbours, thus making it suitable for almost any location.
Snail meat is also considered a delicacy in most parts of Africa, and are in fact quite expensive because they are very healthy meat.
However, without proper management, snail farming could easily become a waste of time and energy.
This course will quickly familiarize you with the fundamentals of snail farming, and also help you to set up your first snail farm properly, and with low capital.
