Bar R Enterprises, LLC was started by Ray and Roberta Hough to fill a need in the community. Since they began in 2005, they have added several businesses as they saw a niche in the community.

We became dealers for Derksen Portable Buildings which has flourished and brought many new friends into our circle. We appreciate all the support from the community.

Homeland Outdoor Carports was the next business that we decided to become dealers for and, again, it has done well and brought many more people into our circle of friends.

Roberta then started Bar R Design & Printing, which can handle a variety of print projects, followed by Simple Treasures Gift Shoppe, which specializes in Rosaries along with some custom jewelry, as well as antiques and collectibles.

We also added a propane refilling station, which is open 7 days a week. A decision was made to make the station open 7 days a week to accommodate both the local populace and those who are only here on weekends. Should someone need propane in an emergency (arriving in the area late, running out during the night, especially in winter, etc.), we are available 24/7. All one need do is call us at 318-645-7673 and we will come out and make sure you have the propane you need.

An additional offshoot became The Thrifty Flea, which is a thrift store where you can purchase a variety of items at very reasonable prices. The shop will also take consignments for a minimal fee.

We are very blessed to have had the support of our community and hope to continue to serve them for many years to come.
