Wiener Schnecken aus dem Hause Gugumuck

NATURAL FARMING METHODS

Our vineyard snails are raised using natural methods and no chemicals. The animals live naturally and free-range on our vegetable field. We feed them plants from our own farm and vegetables and herbs grown locally in the neighborhood. We add special organic feed from local mills, and lime to help them grow their shells.

Snails need less space than other farm animals. Our snail fields are about 2,000 m┬▓ in size and are located right on the Gugumuck Farm. They are surrounded by two fences. The outer fence keeps out wild animals such as jackrabbits, deer, and pheasants, animals that are quite common on the outskirts of Vienna. The inner fence is smeared with canola grease and salt to create a natural barrier that keeps the snails from wandering off. When the snails smell the salt, they simply turn around and go the other way.
