Kyle LeBlanc Crawfish Farms is a family owned business since 1990 and have been in the business of selling quality crawfish and other fine Louisiana seafood and food products. We and our ancestors have lived around crawfish all our lives and now we are dedicated to bringing live crawfish and other fantastic Louisiana food products to people around the U.S. After all, crawfish has been called a delicacy here since the early 20th century.
Crawfish was once thought of as a poor man's food because they were plentiful and easy to catch. They soon became more and more popular and people started having "crawfish boils." A crawfish boil is very popular in Southern Louisiana - people call friends and family together to boil and serve the crawfish, usually in the spring and early summer months when crawfish are more plentiful and cheaper. When having a crawfish boil, you can usually plan on ordering about 1-2 lbs. per person (3-4 lbs. for a heavier crawfish eater) as long as you have other items to serve such as sausages, potatoes, corn, etc. Also, boiled goes excellent with cold beer. A crawfish boil is a tasty excuse to call over a few family and friends. And we at Kyle LeBlanc Crawfish Farms would like to spread this Cajun tradition throughout the nation.
Leftover crawfish are great to make crawfish dishes like etouffee, bisque, stews, fried, etc. (see our recipes). We also include crawfish recipes in your order. Whatever crawfish you have not eaten in 2-3 days after your party, you can peel these remaining crawfish and store them in your freezer until ready to cook.
Our live crawfish come in 3 sizes: select (large), medium and bait size (crawfish make excellent bait!). You can see the count size on our products and prices page. We sell mainly Procambarus Clarkii (Red Swamp Crawfish) and Procambarus Actus Actus (White River Crawfish - Spillway Crawfish - Belle River Crawfish). We sell live and boiled crawfish year round, however, they are more plentiful and cheaper in spring and early summer. Crawfish and our other Cajun products can turn any routine holiday into a Mardi Gras!
We have other Louisiana seafood and food products such as shrimp, crab, turtle and alligator as well as prepared foods that contain these products and crawfish such as sausages, boudin, pies, patties, etc. We also have turkduckens, which is a boneless duck wrapped by a boneless chicken wrapped by a boneless turkey stuffed with either crawfish or shrimp dressing or rice dressing.
We supply recipes with your order; however, we do provide recipes on our web site.
We deal ONLY in high quality crawfish shipped overnight, wild (spillway) and farm raised with unlimited resources and the best service available throughout the year.
NOTE: Pricing is not the only variable that goes into shipping of live crawfish. Other variables include quality crawfish that arrive alive guaranteed, crawfish shipped from New Orleans International (more flights than metro airports), crawfish shipped by the most experienced seafood company in Louisiana seven days a week, and unlimited quantity; other companies cannot supply all year long. Please remember we are the #1 shipper of live crawfish in the U.S., since 1990. Please see our comments from past customers!!

|What is a crawfish? Crawfish are freshwater crustaceans closely related to the lobster. They are known also by other names such as crawfish, crawdads, red claw, and mudbugs (they don't eat mud, they just live in it sometimes and they are not bugs). Crawfish are crustaceans – they have a shell and five pairs of legs. As they grow, they molt their shells and grow new ones. Crawfish are sold for consumption, for bait and for pets.|
|Where are the baby crawfish? The female crawfish lays eggs which become fertilized and attach to her swimmerets under her tail. The average crawfish produces about 300-400 eggs which take about 2-4 weeks to hatch (depending on the type of crawfish). After 2 weeks, young crawfish leave the mother to be on their own.|
Crawfish live not much longer than 1½ to 2 years. They usually reach maturity anywhere from 2 to 6 months.
