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 the qualities that a local environment has on the creation of a food. Quilcene sits at the foot of the Olympic mountains (and the same latitude as the traditional snail-growing Burgundy region of France). The combination of climate, soil, sun, rain and humidity result in escargot that are every bit as tasty as their European counterparts.
