Host portrait

Carole does not come from an agricultural background and yet… She is the only helicopter farmer in Maurienne. After working in a company, Carole was looking for another, more fulfilling career path. She discovered snail farming, trained and it was a revelation. With the help of her husband, her project becomes reality. In 2006, she set up her parks at her home in Fontcouverte la Toussuire at an altitude of 1,000 meters. She raises snails gros-gris that she transforms. Her commitment does not stop there.
In 2022, she participated in the creation of the National Heliciculture Federation in order to defend and develop French snail production.
