The exploitation is located at the gates of Rodez, municipality of Flavin on the territory of the Monts et Lacs du Lévezou en Aveyron. Breeding of Helix Aspersa Maxima, commonly called Gros Gris for its tender flesh and size close to the Bourgogne and the Hélix Aspersa Müller, commonly called petit gris that is increasingly hard to find in the countryside because it is collected randomly and unregulated. Breeding in respect of the biological and environmental cycle of the gastropods. The snails are bred in outdooe parks with untreated wooden structures that serve as shelter for the snails.
