The Barnyard was started in 1993 by Dale Martin and was originally located next door to the property it is on now.  Dale owned the business for 9 years until his employee David Horst bought the business.  Dave owned the Barnyard until Feb of 2016 at which time the current owner John & Tammy Hershberger purchased the business.

The business has steadily grown & has thrived by providing quality sheds at affordable prices and by making each customers buying experience a excellent one. John & Tammy enjoy working with every customer to provide them a shed that will suit their needs & last for years to come.  Each shed is built at our facility in Fruita to ensure the high standard of quality that was set when the business first opened over 25 years ago.  


John grew up in the Amish faith in Minnesota and left when he was 17 years old.  John met Tammy shortly there after and as life would have it, they started to build a life together.  They later moved to Wyoming, got married and John worked in the oil field and Tammy worked as a office manager.  After living their for 6 years they decided it was time to make a change and so they moved to Colorado and was excited to see what the Lord had in store for them.  After a couple attempts by David Horst to sell them the business, John & Tammy decided that this was the next chapter of their lives and they purchased it from David on February of 2016.

 Since purchasing the business they have continued to grow the business by continuing to build quality sheds and providing excellent customer service. 

They have enjoyed getting to work with the previous owner David and his family as he still works as the delivery man and his son DeLayne still does the on-sites.  They look forward to growing their business and serving the storage needs of this community for years to come.
