This Week in Louisiana Agriculture

This Week in Louisiana Agriculture

Bringing Louisiana Farmers & Consumers Together Every Week.

 

Connecting Consumers and Louisiana Agriculture

TWILA, the creation of former Louisiana Farm Bureau Public Relations Director and TWILA Host Regnal Wallace, is seen on 18 broadcast and cable stations across Louisiana and nationally on RFD-TV. The program is one of the longest-running television programs produced in Louisiana. 

Each week co-hosts Avery Davidson and Kristen Oaks-White, along with TWILA's team of producers and reporters Neil Melancon, Karl Wiggers and Monica Velasquez travel the state telling farmers' stories.

Over the years the show’s content has moved beyond just row crop production to include environmental, legislative and consumer issues. The program was cited by a member of the state’s Senate Ag Committee as a “video lesson on the importance of agriculture.”

Struggling Seafood Production

As of right now, the Bonnet Carre Spillway is still open, pouring water from the Mississippi River into Lake Pontchartrain. This is the second time the structure has been opened this year, which is an unprecedented occurrence. While this is saving New Orleans and other areas from flooding, it doesn’t come without consequence for the seafood industry.

Liuzza Produce Farm

As you know Tangipahoa Parish is well known for their strawberries across Louisiana, Ponchatoula even hosts the strawberry festival every April. However, if you go north of Hammond, you’ll find Liuzza Produce Farm, well known for their strawberries, but as you’ll see they do so much more and keep it all in the family.
