ABOUT US

Our story...

IT STARTED WITH A FEW BARRELS.

Image by Louis Moncouyoux

Originally searching for just a few used whiskey barrels to make a backyard table, we drove a trailer downtown Chicago to pick up the first 20 barrels because they were the only ones we could find. Thinking that this was more barrels than we would ever need, a post on social media to get rid of a few extras received hundreds of responses and we realized people all over were looking for barrels just like us. This started our mission to find the best barrels and keep selling them at the best prices.

 

Begging friends for help, renting trucks, and trying to learn the logistics of "the barrel business", The Barrel Barn became a family affair with lots of people helping out along the way. Barrels now come by the truckload but the focus is the same-getting barrels into hands of people who think they are as awesome as we do to see what they can dream up!

THE FARM

We sell barrels 5 miles south of Elburn, IL at “The Farm”, the property that our family has lived and worked on for four generations. People drive here from hours away because we have great barrels at fair prices, and we are proud to root our business in the town we grew up in.
