Langlois Crossroads Farm

“Local” and “sustainable” aren’t just trendy buzzwords at Langlois. The Langlois Crossroads Farm in New Orleans’ Upper Ninth Ward is an incubator for the big ideas we have about local food, culture, and community. In June 2014, Langlois became the first recipient of a vacant lot through the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority’s Green Initiative. As part of the Growing Green Community project, NORA grants leases on vacant lots throughout the city to support greening efforts and improve the quality of life in New Orleans neighborhoods.

Langlois’ 7,200-square-foot lot is home to raised garden beds growing herbs and vegetables, fruit trees, and a chicken coop. We’re growing every day, and hope to add a beekeeping operation to the farm in the near future. “The real fun will start when guests can pick their own fresh, local ingredients, then prepare a fabulous meal in our kitchen,” says Langlois chef/owner Amy Cyrex-Sins.
