Reviews for: Gotreaux Family Farms
Horrible people, bad customer service

I shopped with this family for years, even bringing many friends and family to them. However, I bought a bad package of tilapia from them at the farmers market. I noticed when I bought it, it wasn't frozen, although it usually is. I inquired, but they told me it would be fine to take home and freeze. I did. Less than 2 weeks later, I took the fish out to thaw and cook. I immediately noticed a rotten odor and messaged them to see about exchanging for another package. They accused me of lying and mishandling the fish. They did exchange it, but the wife was terribly rude when she did, tossing the fish at me. I offered to bring the bad fish to them, but the reply was a snarky, "we don't want it!" Never again will I buy from, or recommend them. With all the business I brought them, to be treated this way over a $12 package of fish is beyond me, and just shows you that the "nice family" routine is simply an act.
These Farmers Walk the Walk.

The Gotreaux Family is passionate about growing nutrient dense food. We participate in their CSA to receive a variety fresh vegetables weekly, and we buy their delicious pastured chicken and other poultry, like holiday turkeys, as they produce it. Their willingness to exchange ideas and share their experience with other producers has accelerated the local food movement in our community to all our benefit. Check them out yourself at the Farm Stand on Tuesday or at the Hub City Farmers Market in the Oil Center on Saturday.
Delightful food, family, and experience- Always

What a lovely place for a visit and what a gift to their community to offer such a bounty every week at their farm on Wednesday afternoons, and at our local farmer's market on Saturday mornings.
It is truly a privilege to be able to buy and savor such amazing foods. Who knew eggs had neon yellow yolks? Happy chickens!
Thanks to the whole family for the hard work and dedication this takes. It is greatly appreciated.

Fantastic Farmers and Food

The Gotreaux Family Farm is wonderful! As newlyweds my husband and I are trying our best to eat organic, natural and local - the Gotreauxs provide us with just that! We have tried new fruit and new vegetables and all have been wonderful experiences. The food is always fresh - especially the eggs and tilapia. Whether we buy at the Saturday morning Oil Center Farmer's Market or at their farm on Wednesday afternoon, we always receive friendly, honest service and wonderful food. We are able to purchase quality food at very great prices!
