La Bonne’s Markets

From the beginning, the LaBonne name became known for quality meat and fish.

Bats are actually very beneficial. One of our biggest challenges at the farm is fighting pests and protecting our organic crops. Most bats are insectivores and act as a natural pest control. Even one little brown or gray bat can consume over 1,000 mosquitoes in one hour.
