Barn2Door has empowered me to grow into my career. With the help and support of my managers and teammates and the trust given to me to make a difference to the business, I've been able to take on challenges and learn at a pace that is both manageable yet exciting.

Sam

Software Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

Barn2Door emerged from the idea that Farmers should profit more from the products they sell—without a middleman marking up prices. We believe food should be as convenient to buy direct from local Farmers as it is to go to the grocery store or buy from an online grocer. We are passionate about powering Farms' success.

Janelle

Since we are a fast-paced startup, there's constantly collaboration between departments. Across the business, people are willing to jump in and contribute their talents to get things done!
