Barn Tours has been around for about 20 years and I have owned it the last 4.5 years.  I love my job and the people I get to meet because of my job. In the last 4.5 years Barn Tours has started to branch out to try new things and create new programs for the business.  I have tried to revamp the company so that it follows my goals and ideas on where I think Barn Tours should be going. So I have been very busy racking my brain along with others to figure out how to just do that while still keeping with the original ideas of why Barn Tours was founded.

I'm not quite ready to let the cat out of the bag and tell what is exactly going on. But know it is big and exciting and its killing me that I can not share it with you yet. Those who know Barn Tours and have worked with us I hope you welcome and love the new changes we are gonna make and those who have yet to experience us I hope they love what we are doing and want to jump on the band wagon. So stay tuned and look out for the 'New & Improved" version of Barn Tours to debuting soon.
