We’re Proud to Remain Family-owned and Operated Since 1985

In the beginning – 1985, ONE man, ONE tractor, ONE vision, of creating a legacy for his family. Through trial and error, David created a 50 acre pond and started shipping Live Crawfish out of state, on ONE carrier, to ONE college buddy whom sold to ONE customer in Virginia. Together with his wife and two young children, they made the house trailer on the farm a home. In the kitchen was ONE desk , ONE landline, paper and pen to write orders for shipping out crawfish. They caught, packed and delivered in ONE truck, to ONE airline, David could only imagine of what his idea may become.

Now almost 40 years later ONE 50 acre pond has grown to OVER 1000 acres on the original location. The ONE truck is now a fleet purchasing crawfish from other South Louisiana farmers and transporting to ONE of our three shipping centers throughout the state. No longer, ONE Airline, we now utilize FedEx, UPS, and Southwest Airlines to supply our ever growing customer base.

Still family owned and operated, but now also employ a krewe of team members to carry out the multitude of tasks it takes to ship LOUISIANA to YOU!!

How did this happen? It started with ONE, and multitudes of support to grow a vision into a reality!
