T. Moise Farms is a big hit every weekend in Lafayette at the Lafayette Farmers and Artisans Market. Locals come from all over the Acadiana area to stock up on fresh beef, poultry, honey and what many locals claim to be the best boudin in the south.

T. Moise Farms also supplies meats and products to restaurants in New Orleans and Lafayette.
