We are the third generation to farm our land which has been in our family since 1918. Since the tobacco buyouts, we came up with a fairly new product to North Carolina; raising prawns. This is our second year raising Maylasian Freshwater Prawns. They are a tropical species and therefore can only be raised in the warm months with one harvest in the fall.
We have an unique way of harvesting which guarantees a better quality meat. First, the pond is drained into a harvest basin. The prawns are dipped out and put into oxygenated tanks. There they purge their bodies of any impurities. This makes a cleaner meat with no grit. After this process, the prawns are placed into an icy slur, quickly killing them and dropping their body temps.
