September means a lot of things...SEC football, back to school, our church's Parish Fair. But, most importantly, it's our Annual Pondbank Harvest! We just started doing this a few years ago, and it's become quite the Delta event. You can bring the whole family (put the kids in their mudboots!) and your cooler, and load up on fresh, straight-out-of-the-pond prawns for a great price.
We only do this for 2 weekends a year - this year it will be SEPTEMBER 20TH AND 27TH from 10am-4pm. Large prawns are $7/lb., and jumbo prawns are $8/lb. Also, the best U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish fillets you have ever tasted (Lauren Farms Catfish, of course!) will be available in 2 lb. packages for $11.50.
Let me give you a bit of advice - if you know that you want some prawns, and you will be heading out on one of those dates, CALL ME AHEAD OF TIME AND BOOK YOUR PRAWNS! 662-390-3528. We ALWAYS sell out, and usually have to turn folks away (which is never fun) so stake your claim before you come. And if you are coming after 1 o'clock, call us on the way out so we'll know you still want your prawns.
Also, don't forget your coolers and ice!
There are plenty of fun things to do around the Delta if you are from out of town. Feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call, and I'll be glad to give you any information you need for your Leland trip. I usually put signs up around our farm to lead you in from the highway. It's easy to get lost on the way to my house, but I try to make the directions as easy as possible.
More to come on the Harvest later, but I just wanted to get you all excited! Definitely put the event on your calendar - you'll get our tasty, fresh prawns for a steal of a deal.
