Gray’s Creek Elementary students enjoyed a visit from Red Barn Farm Tours on Monday and Tuesday, March 13-14.

Founded by Russell and Jolene Roy of Amite, Red Barn Farm Tours travels to schools, churches, community gatherings, and parties across southeast Louisiana to give young children a chance to learn about farm animals through a hands-on experience.

The farm has been in operation for nearly 15 years and made thousands of visits, Russell Roy said.

“It’s a life-changing event for a lot of kids,” he said.

During the two-day visit at Gray’s Creek Elementary, students were able to interact with young dogs, rabbits, chickens, and other animals.
