Yellow Barn History

We have officially been a business since 1987. Our story doesn't start there though.  Let's go back a few more years:

 In 1973, owners Marjorie and Alex grew a small amount of corn and put a sign up at the end of their road that said,"Sweet Corn."

People started driving out to the farm and buying corn right from the yard. In a couple of years, the venue progressed to a roadside stand directly across from where the Yellow Barn is located today. Colleen, their daughter, spent every summer selling corn there. Corn from the farm was also sold wholesale to the city and around the Fraser Valley.

It was in 1986 that Marjorie purchased the property where the Yellow Barn is situated. The family built a small barn-shaped store and the doors opened in July of 1987. It didn't take long to become known as a great place to stop for the freshest local fruit, vegetables and especially corn.

Since then the store has more than doubled in size. In recent years, the family added a kitchen and deli serving fresh sandwiches, coffee, breakfast and lunch daily. The Yellow Barn has become a meeting place and a landmark for travelers from all across the country. In the summer months we see many vacationers who make a stop at our store part of their travel plans. In our quieter months we are there for our local neighborhood and people who come out from Vancouver for our unique products and homestyle country atmosphere.
