So where does the name “JB’s” come from?

Meet Jared and Briley, the husband and wife duo who are the founders of JB’s Barnyard! Jared and Briley are Indiana natives and proudly make their ice cream on their own land near Evansville, IN. When you get ice cream from JB’s, you won’t be able to miss the insane positive energy these two bring! They are crazy passionate about their ice cream and even more in love with their community!

JB's History: About

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN,
AT CHANEY'S DAIRY BARN

While in college at Western Kentucky University, Jared and Briley would often be found at Chaney's Dairy Barn. Briley worked at Chaney's Dairy Barn milking cows and scooping ice cream in their ice cream shop. After college, Jared and Briley moved back home to Evansville, IN, where they started JB's Barnyard. From 2021-2023, JB's Barnyard sourced their ice cream directly from Chaney's Dairy Barn. With the incredible help of the Chaney family, Jared and Briley were able to kick start their business while learning how to make that irresistibly tasty ice cream!

STARTING A MOBILE ICE CREAM BUSINESS

Jared and Briley began construction on their mobile ice cream truck in February of 2021! While still working full time jobs, Jared and Briley spent their evenings and weekends building out their ice cream truck and creating the business. Word quickly took off about JB's Barnyard, as JB's was soon booked almost 6 days a week with ice cream events!

MAKING ICE CREAM ON OUR OWN LAND

After rapidly growing in only 2 short years, JB's Barnyard co-founders, Jared and Briley, realized it was time to begin making their own ice cream. In the Spring of 2023, Jared began renovating space in the couples 3,000 square foot barn to make their own ice cream production area! On May 31st, 2023, Jared and Briley made their very first batch of ice cream!

JB'S BARNYARD

JB’s Barnyard was born, not only as an ice cream business, but as a vision for Jared and Briley’s future. The word “barnyard” is more than just a business name. The “barnyard” is the goal. “Barnyard”, although signifying the future, motivates our present. The word “barnyard” is the daily reminder to Jared and Briley of what they are working so hard for. Although Jared and Briley are far from achieving their dream farm where the public can come visit, they are proud to be where they are today.


Even after three years of JB’s Barnyard being established, they have only achieved a small portion of their “dream”. But it is important to take note of every win, even the small ones. So although Jared and Briley have a dream of one day owning more land with hundreds of cows, for now, they will start with one.
