ABOUT THE BARN

The story of The Barn actually begins with the formation of Great Western Supply, our sister company. In 1978, Dan and Carla O'Neill recognized the importance of healthy soil amendments, and matched that need with the request that dairy farmers had to remove recycle manure from their farms. The manure became an amendment for several soil mixes. In time, Great Western Supply grew to meet other landscaping needs in our community. Customers were then suggesting that the business begin carrying nursery stock. It was eight years later when the old barn sitting next to Great Western Supply, surrounded with tall weeds, became The Barn Nursery.

Great Stop, Great Shop

In the fall of 1986 the nursery opened its doors for business. Since that time The Barn Nursery has expanded into a garden center and carries more than plants and trees. Our nursery has items such as organic garden products, tools, and outdoor cedar furniture, many pieces for your garden décor, educational classes and much more. The inside of our barn is home to our unique gift shop which features distinctive gifts and home décor. There is a wonderful variety of merchandise made by our local artists.
