Meet the Owners

Tyler and Courtney Tjeerdsma purchased The Canton Barn from Kalli and Tim Blackstone in January of 2024.  They are thrilled to take on this adventure and continue to legacy that the Blackstones left behind. 

Tyler and Courtney both grew up in a rural setting.  Tyler, originally from Avon, South Dakota, grew up helping his grandpa on the family farm.  Courtney grew up in Brandon, South Dakota where her passion for horses began.  They both value the hard work and way of life that a barn represents.  Tyler and Courtney married in September of 2021 at The Canton Barn.  Since their wedding day, it was a frequent conversation of wanting to one day own the venue.  They are beyond excited to see this dream become a reality.

Family is the most important aspect of the Tjeerdsma’s lives.  When they aren’t at one of their two barns, they are busy chasing after their three children, Zayden, Kinley, and Casen.
