We appreciate and support all of our members. The Clearly Kosciusko Member Spotlight is a way for our members to highlight their organization or business and for us to show how much we appreciate their participation.
The Clearly Kosciusko member we’re shining the spotlight on this month is Blue Barn Berry Farm. Located in Syracuse, IN, Blue Barn is both a berry farm and a beautiful event venue. They regularly host weddings, holiday parties, community events, and a variety of other celebrations.
Blue Barn is also renowned in our community for their U-Pick Berry Farm. Both blueberries and blackberries are grown on the farm and are available from late June through early September.

About Blue Barn Berry Farm
“In five years we’ve grown from a tiny seasonal country market and gravel pit to one of the biggest thriving agritourism businesses in the state – and with that growth, we are able to create jobs, forge new partnerships and give even more to our local community.”Chris Scheeran, Partner & Owner of Blue Barn Berry Farm
Blue Barn is proud to partner with 26 local farms, families, and small businesses, including:
- Miller’s Orchard
- Brew City Coffee
- Harvest Coffee
- Jerky Jerks
- Indiana Snack Foods
- …and more!
The majority of their products in their store and on Blue Barn Fresh are local and 100% of the items included in their Blue Barn Fundraising program are locally-sourced.
They love working together with local partners who believe in the same mission and are excited about what they can contribute to the Kosciusko County community by working together!
Connecting With Our Local Community
Blue Barn has been community-focused from the start, hosting field trips for children and senior citizens on their fully-functioning blueberry farm.
With Blue Barn Fresh: Kosciusko County’s locally sourced grocery delivery service, they have been able to donate dozens of free grocery bags throughout the community.
In 2021, Blue Barn Fundraising was launched to serve schools and not-for-profit organizations. Their goal is to donate over $1,000,000 using only locally-sourced products. Their mission to donate $1 million would actually add $2-$3 million in economic value to our local community.

“We LOVE being a part of this amazing community and have always believed that TOGETHER we can all achieve more and serve on a greater level. We hope we can share some new customers with other great businesses in Clearly Kosciusko!”Chris Scheeran, Partner & Owner of Blue Barn Berry Farm
