Far from crispy Wiener schnitzel, a Viennese farmer prepares for the next food revolution. Andreas Gugumuck, a former IT specialist and boxer, has fast turned his snail farm in the south of Vienna into a hub for sustainable farming.
The farm raises Wiener schnecke, or “Viennese snails.” Visitors can tour the farm, participate in “snail rearing” workshops, and enjoy the fruits of Gugumuck’s labors at the shop or bistro. The former includes jarred snails as well as snail livers and caviar. The bistro serves specialized snail dinners three Fridays each month (it seats only 28, so reservations are recommended). The snail farmer himself is usually around to guide guests through the various courses.
