Terrebonne Parish

Terrebonne, which means “Good Earth”, has an abundance of seafood, wildlife and natural resources. Known for our endless bayous, dark-water swamps, red crawfish, and food festivals, Terrebonne Parish is a unique part of “Cajun Country”.  It is composed of low flat land with a topography varying from prairies and wooded areas about 12’ above sea level in the northern part, to bayous, lakes and salt marshes in the southern section. Oil and gas are the primary source of revenue. Oyster, shrimp, crabs, and fish are the major seafood contributors to the economy. Sugarcane, cattle, citrus and vegetables are the major agronomic crops in the parish.
