Probably best by bus. There are direct buses hourly to Lucca bus station, and buses from there to Barga www.vaibus.com/pdf/libretto_Extraurbano.pdf

By train you would have an additional change at Pisa Centrale, and Barga train station is some distance from Barga and a long way below it.

If you use this version of the trenitalia website http://www.fsitaliane.it/homepage_en.html it accepts 'Pisa Airport' for that station, and just 'Pisa' for Pisa Centrale. And if you enter 'Barga', it will tell you the names of the two Barga stations and make you choose.

The bus trip from Pisa to Lucca is lovely - and you can easily get the bus just outside the airport. When you buy your ticket - in the airport - see if you can get the ticket to Barga, too, so that you don't have to stand in the sometimes-lines at the Lucca bus station. You'll probably get a smaller bus Lucca>Barga. This, too, is a very delightful journey.
