A Ngai Tahu woman has found she can't grow snails fast enough to meet demand.

Raewynne Achten started Silver Trail Gourmet Snails after researching untapped business opportunities.

Waatea News reports she grows them on her property in Raukawa Valley near Hastings for supply to restaurants and recently opened another farm in Onga Onga to meet demand.
