I cannot describe how at peace I feel knowing that at any time Touchstone Snails is a phone call away. They’re always willing to help you out. I highly recommended Touchstone Snails for anyone eager and able to enter the snail farming business.
My name is Costas, I live in a rather isolated village where employment opportunities are rare. Snail farming was the solution I was looking for. Today, I run my own snailery and I didn’t even have to move out from where I live. Thanks Touchstone Snails for your help.
This is Achilleas. For two years I was unemployed despite thoroughly looking for an opportunity. Everyone was turning me down. Thanks to my children who’ve chipped in, I can now run my own snailery and have substantial revenue. Thanks Touchstone Snails for being there for us.
Thanks to Touchstone Snails’ help I was able to turn a deserted pig farm into a state-of-the-art snail farm that pays well. Stelios.
This is Eva. Touchstone Snails help by built my very own business. My dad was unemployed for some time and was searching for a job without much luck. Now, we run our own business and my dad has a snailery.
I’m Katerina from Corfu, Greece. In 2010 I was laid off. Despite searching for opportunities everywhere, I couldn’t land a decent job.
The very few options I came across were discouraging; minimum wage, no health insurance, slave-like conditions and no reassurance whatsoever that my job was guaranteed. This dismal situation was of course disheartening but I wouldn’t let myself give up so easily. I promised to myself; I won’t be made into a slave. My moral cannot be broken, I’ll find a way!
So I started looking through my options to see what I could do to decently survive during those times of financial crisis and uncertainty with the little savings I had.
After thoroughly researching snail farming on the Internet, I learnt all I could about it. I’ve learnt how Touchstone Snails offers a robust business opportunity and needless to say, I was excited. However, I didn’t want to rush into it, I talked with many entrepreneurs who already were in collaboration with Touchstone Snails and their feedback was positive and reassuring. Everyone was emphasizing how profitable such a business opportunity actually is. So, I decided to go for it.
Today, I’m the proud owner of a snail farm. Touchstone Snails provides me with its integrated and complete expertise, supporting and guiding me every step along the way. Finally, I can kiss goodbye unemployment and professional frustrations, looking confidently towards a better tomorrow, for a future that’s hopeful and promising!
This is an alternative type of business; in the current difficult times is the antidote to the crisis. Before the decision is being made we looked into it a lot and identified some key elements that influenced us positively: The disposal of production is guaranteed and is not based in the Cypriot market which besides the crisis that has been suffered, is also very small.
My brother and I built our own snailery. We got advice from people who lacked the expertise and knowledge necessary for snail farming and for two years we didn’t have any snail production. Touchstone Snails took charge and helped us through improvement changes to make our snailery sustainable and profitable.
This is Yiorgos. Touchstone Snails built for me a snail farming business of 1000m2. Today, I can pass to my children a business that can increase their revenue.
The Curtain Method from Touchstone Snails
Using the curtain method as a snail breeding method in snail farming has multiple advantages; it helps with the better management of snails and sanitation.
The use of this method allows snail excretions to fall on the ground and so there’s no actual contact between the snail and its excretions.
This method also helps to adequately air the enclosure, which contributes in the prevention of disease spreading.
Snails do not have the need to always be in horizontal position; snails can easily carry out their activities (eating, sleeping, mating) in vertical position— in some cases, even upside down.
The method simplifies snail harvesting, the farmer doesn’t have to bend down to pick the snails. Snail feeding using this method has also certain merits, mostly related to sanitation and of course, with the easier, faster completion of tasks.
The only substantial drawback of the curtain method is the cost of building the snail farm structure. Considering that the snail breeder only needs 1/5 of a land because the curtain method multiplies by 5 the area — as the farm is structured vertically rather than horizontally, a snail breeding unit of 1000m2 that uses the Curtain Method, yields the same annual production as 5 snail breeding units using other methods. Therefore, the extra capital will be repaid much faster.
We feed our snails only with our formulated food. The natural snail food composition of Touchstone is the result of many years of practice and experience and today this feed is one of the main assets of the company, as it guarantees the fast growth and the excellent unique quality of the snails we breed and trade.
A patent of Touchstone Snail the Electric fence. The electric fence, is useful to keep the baby and the mature snails safe inside the park. If a snail breeding does not use a Electric fence, then the snails will escape from the part, they will be all over the snail breeding unit, they will not fed and there snail be high mortality rate.
We provide all our know-how and support to our clients from the beginning until the end of the breeding cycle, and they must follow our instructions.
We undertake to train each breeder at our own snail breeding units in Cyprus, before they start their production season and we hand over to them a guide and a work schedule that they must follow during the breeding cycle.
Also we request from them to record important data and their feedback from the operation of their snail farms on a special online program to enable us provide instructions.
We offer to every client a sale and purchase agreement under which the company buys all the annual production at a price of Euros 4.00/Kg. Touchstone partakes in the intra-community trade and has a trade licence number : MMEZ 446.
We will export from your country the produced snails in order to be sold to the market.
