The owners Mike and Steve Voisin are 7th generation Voisin’s involved in the seafood industry. Mike and Steve have 80 years of combined experience in oyster cultivation, harvesting, processing, and managing a sustainable resource. Ever since 1770, when the first Voisin arrived in Louisiana from France a respect for the environment has been passed down from generation to generation. Our ancestors who first settled Houma, LA learned quickly how to live off of the land and how plentiful yet unforgiving the swamp can be. Even though those pristine swamps presented challenges for our forefathers they discovered quickly how lush, rich and plentiful the swamps of South Louisiana are.
The Voisin’s have been bringing their harvest to market for Louisiana and New Orleans locals since 1770 and have found that those in other parts of the US, and around the world have an appetite for their seafood’s unique flavor. Fed by the some of the most healthy beautiful fresh wet lands in the world and salted to perfection by mother-nature. Our oysters have the perfect combination of sweet and salt. When you are in the New Orleans area, we invite you to come down to Houma, Louisiana and let us feed you oysters off of the very oyster reefs our foregoers have harvested from for 242 years!
