taste. tradition. terroir.
little gray farms concentrates on raising escargot that is fresh, robustly flavored and the perfect complement to wine, a scrumptious starter or a meal in itself. Quality, freshness and care are the key components that separate little gray farm’s escargot from the canned, tinny-flavored imported escargot currently available to U.S. consumers.

Tradition is almost as an important part of enjoying food as is taste. little gray farms replicates the time-proven techniques and care of its escargot as the best European farms, fed with fresh, naturally grown produce and humanely raised.
Loosely translated as “ a sense of place,” terroir is the embodiment of certain characteristic qualities, the sum of the effects that the local environment has on the creation of the product. Quilcene sits at the foot of the rugged Olympic mountains (and also the same latitude as the traditional snail-growing Burgundy region of France). This combination of climate, soil, sun, rain and humidity result in escargot that are every bit as tasty as their European counterparts.
