Saint-Véron: a snail farm in Braine-le-Château

  • Local producer

This snail farm, specialised in the Gros Gris variety, offers quite an instructive visit.

Did you know?

  • The farm is home to 150,000 snails
  • Boats used to travel with snails on board for food: low in fat, they kept a really long time
  • Snails are used for their medical and cosmetic virtues
  • Beetles is one of their predators

A delicious visit

The Gros Gris is the closest to Bourgogne snails taste-wise and the farm sells to Michelin star restaurants in the region. You can buy some from their sales counter (together with some Caracole beer) or join one of their gourmet table every 2 Sundays.
