The front ramp leads to the portion of the barn that related to the Farm Yard; the lower section is part of the Barn Yard. The upper portion was used to store straw and hay, to thresh oats and/or wheat, and to store important farm equipment. Two areas on the west end of the upper level of the barn may have been used to store grains such as wheat and oats, either loose or in sacks.

The Barn Yard contained the buildings that sheltered the farm animals — one of the primary sources of farm income. These include the Hog House, Sheep Shed, the lower level of the barn that housed milk cows or cattle and the Stables/Chicken Coop portion of the Carriage House. A fence ran from the northeast corner of the Barn to the southwest corner of the Carriage House. A water trough was located half on either side of the fence — allowing animals on both sides of the fence to drink from it. Also, a wide, sturdy farm gate was located in this stretch of fence, providing access from the Farm Yard to the Barn Yard. The fence continued to make an enclosure that included the Hog House, Sheep Barn and lower level of the Barn.
