Adding aux. hose bib at a barn

I just built a new house and all be darn if I forgot something. My kids are in 4-H and my wife likes to garden. I put hose bibs on the house no problem there. What I forgot was that I wanted water to the garden and atleast in the middle of the barns. How do I do this. I thought about burying a line and putting a connection on the end to attach to the hose bib with a "Y" adapter so I can still use that bid for something else. My question is do you think I will have enough preassure to do this way and if not what else can I do.

pressure should not be a problem. if the garage is heated you can install wall mount freeze proof faucets. if not, install in ground hydrants with a connection depth below the freeze line. i have three and they have been very dependable. i like to use the 160 psi polyethylene pipe. if it's burried i like the overkill on specs. the pipe is available in 50 to 400' lengths. try to make the run in one peice if you can. if not, double clamp each connection and double clamp the connection to the hydrant. (also burried) run the pipe below freeze depth. don't forget the 45 degree fitting for the hydrant to drain and set it in granvel for drainage.
