Last Chance for Big E Sale

Sunday is the last day of the Big E and the last day of our Big E Sale, our biggest sale of the year. Don't wait for the winter to figure out where to store your stuff: now is the time to get a new shed or garage from The Barn Yard. Why The Barn Yard? Because our buildings are built better. They are built to withstand strong wind, rain, even 40" of snow. So stop by The Barn Yard at the Big E Gate 9 or any of our stores today before winter is here and it’s too late! Ask your salesperson about special in-stock savings on inventory buildings ready to deliver fast.

Wine & Cheese Barn


We built the new Wine & Cheese Barn at the Big E inside Gate 9. So far, it’s been a great success. From open to close, there’s a line out the door to taste the wines, cheeses, and shop from local vendors. If you haven’t visited yet, be sure to check it out when you’re at the Big E! While you’re sipping on wine and enjoying the cheese selection, glance around and admire the building you’re standing in! It was our great pleasure to build the new Wine & Cheese Barn for the Big E. Cheers.

Grand Opening

The Grand Opening of our Bethel Showcase Location on September 7 was a huge success. Cars filled up the parking lot across the street at Hollandia Nurseries (where they kindly allowed our customers to park), Scot Haney had a line of 30 people for 2 hours, and we met so many new faces and introduced them to our products. We’re proud to be a part of Bethel. The Grand Opening is the beginning of something great!
