General Description: Guidry Organic Farms is a farm start up. Our goal is to be completely organic as well as profitable. Right now we have a rotational grazing sheep herd and pastured laying hens in a converted cotton trailer. We're also renovating a structure to convert into one of the only pecan oil factory's in the state. We also do compost and honey bees. These are just a couple things were getting started with.

In 2016 we look to get into cattle and next winter plant blueberries
