Born of our dream to launch a one-stop-shop for sustainable and healthy living, The Barn began in 2016 as Happy Valley Organic Garden Center, offering organic gardening, hydroponic supplies and free education to our customers.
As our company grew, we always kept an eye out for new or hard-to-find items to bring to Happy Valley. As our customers shared their stories, passions and frustrations, the lack of resources available to the local homesteading crowd became clear; thus The Barn began to take shape.
Community outreach and involvement has always been a cornerstone of what we do and we’re always looking for new ways to become involved with community gardens, schools, non-profits and sustainably minded groups. Collaborations like these became invaluable in crafting our vision and refining our space, and continue to inform our offerings at The Barn.
Through passion and determination, the family behind this shared vision has brought together a unique blend of products, services and expertise — all centered around a sustainable and organic lifestyle, all under one roof.
We’ve also formed a small community of like-minded businesses in our space, known as The Collective at The Barn (learn more about them here). Together with these businesses, The Barn at Lemont hopes to foster a shopping experience like no other, while building and strengthening unique resources in our community.
