To be eligible to win the lawn tractor, customers had to purchase a building from The Barn Yard at the Big E. The Barn Yard had over 20 buildings on display at the Big E this year, including storage sheds, garden sheds, single bay garages, horse barns, and a 2-car 1-1/2 story garage they built onsite specifically for the fair. Customers could purchase a building they saw at the Big E, from The Barn Yard’s inventory of in-stock sheds, or design their own custom built shed or garage.

“As part of our 30th year at the Big E, we wanted to offer something special for one lucky customer,” said Chris Skinner, co-owner of The Barn Yard. “Sheds are often used to store lawn equipment and tools. So we thought, why not include the lawn tractor with the shed?”

Tractor winner Bill R. recalls the Big E. “I saw [The Barn Yard] at the Big E. I needed a new shed because my old one was falling apart and figured why not, I’m here [at the Big E] anyway. I’m glad I did!”

Chris called Bill with the news that he had won the tractor. Bill said he was surprised to hear he won. “I had forgot about it [the giveaway].” When asked what is the first thing he plans to do with the tractor, Bill answered, “Put it in the shed!”

Barn Yard staff driver Keith S. delivered the shed early this morning. The tractor was already inside.

Bill plans to use the lawn tractor for yard work.
