Lauren Farms, Inc.

Founded in 1995, Lauren Farms is a prawn production farm that specializes in the hatching and grow-out of freshwater prawns. As one of the pioneers with Mississippi State University, Lauren Farms has mastered a "full circle" in the production process: hatching, stocking, feeding, water quality, harvesting and marketing. Having proven itself as a forerunner in the industry, Lauren Farms hopes to provide the best outlet possible for the freshwater prawn. Growers Steve and Dolores Fratesi are able to use their strong knowledge and marketing skills to heighten the prawn industry for growers, marketers, buyers and sellers. Last year, Lauren Farms, Inc. averaged yields of over 750 pounds of shrimp per acre from 14 acres grown.
