Welcome to HELIX SA
Helix SA Snail Farm was established in 2019, with a passion to farm snails.
MY DREAM AND VISION:
Helix SA Snail Farm’s vision for the future is to enable all small-scale farmers to have their own curtain style farm, and create a substantial income from the farm, with the potential to grow yearly.
Helix SA Snail Farm in collaboration with the (HFASA) HELICULTURE FARMERS ASSOCIATION SA,
(CFI) Creative Force Industries, (TUT) Tshwane University of Technology to develop the industry and all its by-products.
With a passion for snail farming and very little money, we created our own curtain style farming.
SNAIL FARMING IN A SMALL SPACE WITH BIG RETURNS
Only 250 snails can be raised with success on a 1m2 floor space, so with adding curtains of 1m x 1m square you can raise 500 snails per curtain, which now adds up to 4500 snails per 1m2 floor space.
Saving on space and increased volumes.
We farm on a free-range basis where breeder snails lay their eggs in the soil, outside in a green house. The babies morph and grow up all in a save space, protected from predators.
We offer the following:
Farm visit at our farm with info and short training session with ongoing mentorship
Site visits with ongoing mentorship
Breeding room training at your farm with ongoing mentorship
We sell the following:
Formulated Snail food supply and delivery
Automated watering system run from a dashboard on your phone anywhere in the world with GSM reception.
