Friday, May 18, 2018 - 12:00 am


On Friday, May 18 Mississippi Women for Agriculture will have the opportunity to learn about some of the most fascinating agricultural enterprises in the Mississippi Delta. MWA members and guests will tour a state of the art catfish processing plant, a fish hatchery, a feed mill, and the Indianola Pecan House, a Southern treasure and the home of the “Original Praline Pecan.”

There is no cost except for lunch which will be Dutch treat. Lunch at The Crown is a treat in more ways than one….it’s not only a dining experience not to be missed, but also a gallery of original Delta art, a gift shop, a bookstore that features books about the Blues, the Delta, and fine southern cuisine.

We hope you can join us!
