ROANOKE — A crawfish tour in rural Jeff Davis Parish on Friday gave visitors a chance to learn how the mudbugs make it from the farm to the dinner table. The group, which included 16 visitors from Canada, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Carolina and Texas, spent the day touring a crawfish farm and processing facility as part of a tour sponsored by the Jeff Davis Parish Tourism Commission.
