At Gaelic Escargot the health and safety of our customers and community is our first priority. To reduce the risk of infection we have taken the step to move our Snail Farming Courses online. The theory part is run through ZOOM online video conferencing. This is the same format as you would get in our face-to-face classroom course. The full farm tour can be then arranged when restrictions are lifted.
