It does seem like we were just watching young plants pop up in the fields but our produce sales season has come to an end as it does each year in late July.
We’ve had a great season even with the absence of our delicious peaches due to an unseasonably warm winter. We look forward to a full peach crop next year!
As our attention turns toward the upcoming cotton harvest, we would like to thank all of our loyal customers who journey to Coushatta for fresh veggies. Thank you for supporting what we do here on the farm and we hope we see you all again next season. We will reopen in late May 2018.
A special thanks to all our employees and support staff who toil in the summer heat to keep the crops planted, growing and harvested.

Ed Lester Farms is an outdoor farmer’s market located right on the bank of the west bank of the Red River. Under the shade of our stately grand oak you will feel the cool summer breeze as you peruse through our beautiful selection of fresh picked fruits and vegetables. All produce is displayed in “self serve” fashion.
Produce arrives from the fields beginning around 8 am and typically remains in supply until closing time at 5 pm.
Because of our relationship with Mother Nature, our selection of crops changes over the summer season. Cooler season crops such as lettuce and broccoli will give way to warmer season crops like okra, melons, and purple hull peas.
You may want to bring an ice chest to better transport any shelled peas or beans you purchase. But you will not need to bring any other type of containers or baskets.
Need large quantities? No problem. Our staff is happy to help you with all your purchases.
We accept checks, Louisiana Purchase cards and Senior Citizens Nutrition Program Coupons as well as all major credit cards.
