Mississippi Pond Raised Crawfish

My Hubby has been expermenting with Mississippi State University, in rasing crawfish in a pond. His first big catch!

My Hubby with two five gallon buckets of his pond raised crawfish.

Here is a pan full of cooked crawfish from Hubby’s pond.

Hope you enjoyed our Family Crawfish Boil!

  1. Let me be the first to say I would not survive on Crawdads! LOL I just don’t see the appeal but every June 15th or so around Fathers Day we have a Crawdad Festival in Isleton and you never seen so many people.

    Great pics though I enjoyed looking and not eating. haha

  2. Never had them. If they were in front of me I’d try them. But honestly, they don’t look that good 😉 I’m a northern girl.

  3. You are speaking my language! I hope the farm raising works out–we land locked people would appreciate it! My husband has crawfish brought in each spring and has a huge crawfish, potato, corn boil. People who turn up their nose don’t know what they are missing! Love the cooking shed!

  4. Lady Kathrine, this looks SO good! When my sister and her husband lived in Louisiana, we would go out and buy crawfish from a man who would sell them by the big grocery sack full. Then my brother in law and I would eat them! I weighed about 100 pounds, but I could match him bite for bite at the time. LOL! Still love them to pieces, and I particularly love crawfish etoufee.

    Thanks for taking us along for the boil!


    Sheila 🙂

  5. Ooooh, I love crawfish and it’s so wonderful that your hubby grows them right there. We have crawfish parties here usually in March….Christine

  6. Lady Katherine, you should have called me… I would have been on the first plane over to your crawfish boil! Love them and pond raised, even better! 😉

    Glad you all had a great time!

  7. Hi Sweet Friend!! Looks like a super fun time you all had there!!

    I think it is so cool that hubby is pond raising crawfish!! Who knew it was possible??!!

    I LOVE hubby’s shed, too! My man would really love to have something like that out back!! I’ll have to show him!!

    How you feeling Katherine? Hope your weekend has been good so far and that your Sunday is a real blessing!!

    Love ya, sweetie,

  8. I must confess, I have never eaten crayfish and they scare me. When I was a child, every year we vacationed up in Tahoe and crayfish, or crawdads (maybe not the same thing at all, but they look like each other) would be all over the rocks and in the water, they would bite!! I hated them then, and maybe I should be more willing to eat them now, shouldn’t I?? If I am ever in town………tell your family to keep up the good work and good luck with this, happy pink saturday, Char

  9. Lady Katherine, you come by anytime you have the chance and I hope you get to enjoy all of your dishes soon enough after they’ve all found their homes. LOL

    I went to this Marshall’s in Frisco, TX and I thought I’d died and gone to dish heaven! Most were intact sets for at least six placesettings! I didn’t want to leave… So I know your frustration. Have a great day!

  10. Katherine,

    What a fun family time. The crawfish looked delicious.

    Thank you for visiting and leaving the kind comment. Yes, for the lavender smocking, I am using a smocking board because I am making a bishop cut dress. I think it really helps in holding the shape. But one thing one has to watch when using a smocking board to smock a bishop is that one has have enough thread cut for the whole row… or else, it’s a pain to have to start a new length of thread half way…

    Have a great week!

  11. This is just wonderful. Having your own pond, growing your own crawfish and eating them too! 🙂

    It’s so nice to gather ’round with family.
