The farm is located in northeastern Bulgaria, in the village of Balgarevo, Kavarna municipality, on an area included in the ecological system of protected areas in the European Union – Natura 2000. This is the closest location to the nature reserve “Kaliakra”, which is characterized besides the rich plant and animal species population also by the fact that is the only reserve in Bulgaria, including also protected marine areas. It is the pristine nature and favorable climatic conditions that make the region of village of Bulgarevo the ideal place for growing snails in clean environment and a prerequisite for the high quality of our products.
The farm started its operation in mid 2010 on a total area of 5000 sq.m. It is located 500 m from the Black Sea coast in an ecologically clean area with a moderate continental climate, void of industrial production, with predominant influence of the sea.
“ECO – TELUS” – we chose this combination of two words – “Eco” for clean and “Telus”, which is the name of an ancient goddess (Mother Earth), led by our confidence that the natural resources in the area are most suitable for this purpose and are prerequisite for ecologically clean products.
We are striving to provide day after day the best conditions for our snails – high humidity, optimum temperature, strict hygiene and quality food. The combination of all these factors together with the constant care and control, guarantees the quality of our products.
In our farm we grow snails of the genus Helix Aspersa Maxima (Gros-Gris) applying the most popular method, consistent with the specific features of the area – the French (semi-intensive) method.
