Escargots is a modern and diverse farm, based at the foot of the Chiltern
Hills. The business is family owned by Michael and Sophie Wharton and run
by carefully selected staff, who are all passionate about our business.
We are all completely 'bonkers' about our snails - and yes they do have
names, although not all. As well as having a passionate team of staff we
have the most passionate team of snails - laying to demand so we can supply
the finest fresh Escargot and Escargots Pearls -Snail Caviar.
We produce snail Caviar known as 'Escargot Pearls' are absolutely beautiful, not only visually - they have a wonderful delicate flavour, almost creamy, they gives off woody, Fern and mineral tones all brought to you in a burst on the palate.
We also produce Escargots these are tender and succulent and will rid any thoughts or memories you may have of them being tough and rubbery and overpowered by the taste of garlic. Snails have a wonderful earthy, mushroomy flavour and should not need to be disguised with any other flavour. Grown, harvested and prepared correctly they have the power to stand alone and are a food that is very underestimated - not only for it's taste and texture but also it's nutritional qualities.
We can supply directly or Via Wild Harvest. We supply restaurants, brasseries, food service business, and retail - not forgetting individual customers for private functions. Our Snails and Caviar can be found in Fortnum and Mason.
