Abstract

Sponsored by Mr. John Stoddard, owner of Higher Ground Farm (HGF) in Boston, this project aims to increase profitability by expanding the current organic vegetable farm into a snail farm. To achieve this goal, we developed a business plan on how to implement strategies for a snail farm business. Based on interviews with locally sourcing restaurants, secondary research, and analytical tools, we assessed the market for snails in the Boston and Worcester areas.
