Labor Day Pig Roast – Reeds Ferry Sheds®


Since the first Labor Day holiday in 1894 America has celebrated the contributions workers have made to the strength and prosperity of our country. This Labor Day Reeds Ferry Sheds did the same. Monday
we put our business on pause and had a big pig roast, because the best way to pay tribute to our staff and say “Thank you” is with bacon.

It wouldn’t be a pig roast without the guest of honor, the pig. Enough ham to feed 90 shed carpenters, along with corn, watermelon, potato salad and steamers.

The chef at the pig pit was Reeds Ferry® Service-Manager John Miley. Thanks for a great spread John!


The gentleman circled above is Harry Carleton, President and owner of Reeds Ferry®. Harry and his father opened for business in 1960. Mr Carleton said the secret to surviving 60 years in business is hiring quality people, “I’ve always been fortunate to work with a great team committed to doing the job right. Any success I’ve had is owed to those here today and many others along the way.”

Pig Pile was a new event at this year’s roast. Four teams of 15 competed to see who could fit the most people in our Smart Car, (below left). Members of the winning team were awarded with not having to be seen driving the car for a year!  The winning team stuffed 11 people in the car. The record is 16 set by a group of circus clowns from Des Moines Iowa.


Dunk Tank: The Vice-President of a company is like the Vice-Principal of a high school, generally they’re not well liked. Fortunately we were able to talk our Vice-President into a dunk tank!  (below left.) He was submerged in cold water on throw #142.  142 seems like a lot, but officials ruled the first 137 were aimed at his head and should not count.


$500 Double-Elimination Cornhole Tournament: Cornhole is a bean-bag game. It’s like horseshoes, but unlike horseshoes you can play while intoxicated without fear of concussion. Cash money was at stake, so no team was foolish enough to imbibe. 3rd place took home $100, 2nd place $250 and $500 to the winning duo. But because this is 2019 everyone received a trophy and were told they were winners just for participating.


Labor Day is our chance to stop and appreciate the great work of our staff.  We build quality sheds, but our brand is represented by the men and women wearing Reeds Red.
We thank them sincerely for all they do. Happy Labor Day…

Recent Customer Reviews
Awesome quality sheds and great customer service! I recently bought a Reeds Ferry shed and have been extremely happy with it. If I ever need a new shed again it will be a Reeds Ferry.
Our Reeds Ferry shed is good quality and it adds beauty to our yard. The staff who built the shed was great and did a fabulous job. I recommend Reeds Ferry sheds.
Just had my new Reeds Ferry shed delivered. Worth every penny. You might find a less expensive shed but trust me, it won't be as good as a Reeds Ferry Shed. Plus a 30 year warranty!
From start to finish, Reeds Ferry was a pleasure to work with. The install crew on Truck #10 were very professional. I highly recommend Reeds Ferry Sheds for both quality and service.
Reeds Ferry is an impressive company. Great quality, but the way they go the extra mile to serve their customer is what makes them different. I was very impressed with the entire process
