Resident wants to start shrimp farm in Freedom
April 19, 2018
Thirty-year Freedom resident Jeff Brown has spent most of his working life driving big trucks. At one time, he and his wife owned four trucks and had several hired drivers.
Recently, a friend in Goltry pointed Brown to an opportunity for a unique business for Oklahoma: shrimp farming. After traveling to Purdue University in Indiana, and spending $12,000 for a consultant to study the potential in Oklahoma, Brown has decided to make a go of it. Purdue has a strong aquaculture course of study and their extension agents are providing information on how to produce such ag products.
