The Gilbertson Americana Barn

If you are a long-time Figi’s customer, more than likely you are familiar with the Americana Barn Collection.  For the past 21 years, Figi’s has 2012 Americana Barnadded a new collectible barn to the Americana Barn Series.  A beautiful ceramic barn comes with one of our award-winning Creamy Country Cheese Spreads.

While we love all of our barns, the 2012 Americana barn is extra special because it is inspired by a working dairy farm only 11 miles down the road from the Figi’s Corporate Office.

This historic barn is owned by Linda and James Gilbertson. While the couple has only owned the barn for a short period of time, it has been in the Gilbertson name since 1955.  James’s father, Vernon, purchased the property after he returned from the Korean War.  Vernon and his wife, Virginia, started a dairy farm and raised seven children; three of which still farm today.

Today, the Gilbertson farm continues to be a working farm.  James, Linda and their youngest daughter, Emily, care for 50 cows.

This big, red barn has graced more than just our own catalog pages throughout its existence.  It has been photographed for multiple magazines including Fleet Farm and Farm & Ranch magazine.

We’re always on the lookout for incredible barns as inspiration for the next Americana barn, have you seen the next barn?  We’d love to hear from you! Email us at [email protected].

    I just ordered my Barn that came out in the catalog last week. I have been able to collect all of the previous 21 barns. I would like to recommend the Thumb Octagon Barn for next year. Their website is thumboctagonbarn,org. They have yearly events at their barn every year with large crowds attending. I encourage you to view their website..
