Past Workawayer, I have learned so much and had so many amazing experiences though this platform. Now that I'm settling down and starting a farm I feel it's time to participate on the other side of this.
Main focus in the beginning of this farm establishment is developing regenerative rice and crawfish (Procambarus clarkii) farming practices. Goal is to grow into a diverse farm using regenerative agricultural and business practices.
- Begin apiary this year with 2 hives. Build hives, build swarm trap boxes, catch swarms.
- Begin a veggie and herb garden
- Build vermicompost and compost pit
- Plant native prairie grasses for bee forage near my house
- Plant various native trees and other plants around property
-Plant cover crops on 2021 rice field
-Develop rice weeding tractor equipment

I'm a cajun, I can bring you to cajun shows playing cajun music and dancing, bring you to festivals if there are any happening during your stay, make sure you get your fill of good cajun food. Louisiana has a very unique environment so I will show you around and show you all the goodness.
