PondBank Harvest 2010 Is Here!

It's that time of year again! Freshwater Prawn PondBank Harvest! It's time to bring freshwater prawns to your table or freezer for a great price that only comes once a year. This truly has become a Delta "event" and we have our loyal customers to thank for that!

Here are the details for this year's harvest:

Dates: Saturday October 2 and October 9
Time: 9 am - 4 pm
Where: Lauren Farms in Leland, Mississippi

Pricing: Off the pondbank prawns will be sold at a flat rate of $8/lb. Also, Lauren Farms Catfish will be available in 2 lb. packages for $11.50. (Frozen, headless prawns will also be available at standard pricing.) Prawn recipes will be emailed to customers who order.

It's important to CALL AHEAD AND BOOK YOUR ORDER. 662-390-3528. We always sell out, as supplies are limited. So, place your order before you come. And if you are coming after 1 o'clock, let us know so we will hold your prawns.

Don't forget your coolers and ice!

Directions to our farm: From Leland, get on Highway 61 North headed towards Cleveland. Once you pass the Pepsi company on the right, you'll drive a bit further and see homeade "Shrimp" signs up on the left, near the median. Take that left off of the Highway and follow the signs that will lead you towards Stoneville (it's an asphalt country road.) You'll cross over a removed railroad track and see another "Shrimp" sign up ahead - take that right onto Napanee Road. This road will wind for a little while and lead you through the country, past churches and farmland. Further ahead the road will fork - stay left and keep going straight. Our farm is across from the silver grain bins and set way back off of the road. You'll see the "Shrimp" signs and know you're there!
If you need additional information, feel free to call or email (

Thanks so much for your support - hope to see you there! Don't forget to do 2 things: CALL AHEAD and BRING YOU COOLERS!
