Louisiana Sugar Factories
Raw sugar factories have been operating in southern Louisiana for a very long time. Among them is M.A. Patout & Sons, Ltd. operating a sugar mill south of Jeanerette since 1825. It is still owned and operated by the founding Patout family. Also known as "Enterprise Factory" they run two other old sugar mills: Sterling Sugars founded 1807 in Franklin, and Raceland Raw Sugar in Raceland. All three mills are producers of sugar, molasses, and syrup
