There is a difference between farm management and entrepreneurship. Farm management is about better planning, implementation, control and managing risk. Entrepreneurship is about looking forward, identifying opportunities, creating a vision of how the business will grow, innovating and taking risks. These qualities enable entrepreneurs to seek-out business opportunities, conceptualize and initiate new business ideas and guide their business to accomplish the goals set.
TURKEY TRAININGS Heliciculture Entrepreneurship Certificate Program is inspired by the International Confederation of Agriculture and Food (TARIMKON) experience with the International Farmer Continuing Education Center (CISEM), and aims at contributing to participant’s empowerment by providing a better understanding of the concept and practice of entrepreneurship, taking into consideration the adaptability of
methods and technologies.
Heliciculture Entrepreneurship Training Program
The definition of heliciculture, known also as snail farming, is raising snails for human use. It is recognized as a sub-category of agriculture – and is widely recognized as a very profitable and low-risk form of agriculture. Snails can either be used in gastronomy, cosmetics or as food for reptiles. Escargot shells can be sold for decoration purposes and more recently snail eggs are being produced to enjoy as a type of caviar.
Sometimes you may hear the term heliculture, which basically means the same as heliciculture – both terms refer to snail farming.
Eating snails dates all the way back to prehistoric times and in Roman times eating snails was perceived as a privilege reserved for the elite.
