Escargots nursery 't Slakkenhuys
In Ospel, on the edge of the Groote Peel, there is the only escargots nursery in the southern Netherlands. Here, snails are bred in a sustainable and animal-friendly manner in a natural environment. After a pleasant life in which they lack nothing, the snails are processed into deliciously tender escargots and special escargots dishes.
Visit the nursery - do The Snail Tour!
The breeders, Wim & Tonny Kessels, will passionately tell you all about their nursery. During The Snail Tour you will be immersed in the special world of snails and get to know this extraordinary animal up close. After an interactive presentation you will be guided through the snail tunnel and you can enjoy a walk through the garden or a nice drink in 't Slakkenhuys. Meanwhile, the amuses will be prepared and you can taste for yourself what real escargots are supposed to taste like. Your possible prejudices about snails will have disappeared like snow in the sun after the Snail Tour 😉.
The Snail Tour can be booked from May to October, basically any day of the week. The tour takes about 2 hours. Would you also like to have lunch or dinner, please inquire about the possibilities.
Wim & Tonny welcome you at 't Slakkenhuys!
