homegrown happiness.

August 6, 2014

there once was a guy named jason…who fell madly, deeply, and fiercely in love with a girl named lynsey.

and these two…well they decided they wanted to be farmers. and so they did.

they wanted life to get back to the basics with their 4 little girls. they wanted people to KNOW their farmers. to KNOW where their food was coming from…

YonDER WAY FARM is an organic meat farm here in fayette county….where the only thing better than their homegrown organic goodness is the authenticity of their hearts and their lives. they believe in honesty. in hard work. in dirt under your fingernails. in getting up at sunrise with the chickens and then making sure all the animals are tucked in safely at sunset.

and most importantly, they believed in good things and in being good people.

i absolutely CANNOT wait for y’all to meet the kramers of YONDER WAY FARM on this week’s episode of junk gypsies. because we know that y’all are going to love them just as much as we do.

jason, also known as @yonderwayfarmer, and lynsey, aka @fivechicksandafarmer, as they are known to their legions of instagram followers. (if you don’t follow them on instagram, let me tell ya…you are missing out!). and of course their 4 little chicks…kk, laney rae, ruthie, and exie jo….all make up yonder way farm.

this farm is their dream. their passion.

this is the good stuff, y’all. we are proud to call them friends and country neighbors. this week, you can watch as we visit YonDER WAy FARM, dig around in the barns for all kinds o’ lost junk, and give them the farm store they so deserve!


and oh yes, we did….because who could resist? american gothic…yonder way farm style.


we’re so excited for y’all to meet the kramers and to see the transformation of their country store this week! tune in this thursday, AugUST 7…9/8C on GreaT AMERICan COUNTRY!

watch the sneak peek here!!!


and go catch up with the fam on facebook and instagram for all kinds o’ homegrown happiness!

yes He did. GoD made a farmer. and GoD bless those farmers.

and from jason’s favorite song…let’s all take a moment to really…i mean REALLY absorb these lyrics…

“take your time… don’t live too fast,
troubles will come and they will pass.
go find a woman and you’ll find love,
and don’t forget son,
there is Someone up above.”

-simple man, lynyrd skynyrd

and finally…thanks to april pizana, lynsey’s instagram & matt blair for these pics!!!

    So stunning and heartwarming ! I loved falling in love with this sweet family! Talk about going back to the basics and what really matter, family, life, home, hard work and tender love. I love the simple decor of life, no phones, no internet, no clocks! Just the raising and setting of the sun!

    I first read about this wonderful family in “Where Women Cook”. My husband comes from a farming family and I always loved visiting the farm. Living in So. Cal, I don’t get to see the wide open spaces much. We are planning a trip to Round Top to visit the place of my favorite tv sisters. Bless your family

    Love the name Yonder Farm, it is very fitting for a much gentler time of yester year. Love the Junk Gypsie family, and all the talent they have for turning junk into treasures. Blessimgs for continued success, and encouraging the Importance of the American farmer.

    If all could follow their dreams it would be surprising how many of us would do this. Maybe not as classy butcwe would. Oh what a healthier, sweeter, wonderful world it would be!

  • Reply Lynda Reppert August 7, 2014 at 9:31 pm

    The show just gives us quick glimpses of all the neat things you create. What if your blog could post a lot of stills of the show so we could look at at all the Junk Art at our own pace? Thank You!

    Saw the Yonder Way Farm show last night. Absolutely loved it and them! I love your show: you gals are the best, and can’t say enough good stuff about your family. Finding you on GAC has been such a treat. I don’t miss a show, and watch all the repeats as well. I wish you many blessings for continued success.

  • Reply Amberly August 8, 2014 at 9:25 am

    I am so sad I live on the west coast and loved this show when it was on here now we do not have it offered. I have searched a bunch of times to see if it pops up but nothing. Is there somewhere I can go to watch the episodes?

  • Reply Donna W. August 10, 2014 at 12:33 am

    I saw the show and wished I lived closer to be able buy from the yonder way farms, but Iowa is a little far. I just love your show and I was wondering how the new little chicks are doing. I am going to check out the Yonder Way Farms website.

  • Reply Stacy August 10, 2014 at 9:43 am

    Holy smokies – is that a Marhofer’s Pure Lard bucket on their mantle (red and yellow bucket in the picture with Lynsey and the chicks)? That’s awesome to see being a Marhofer and all! Lovely farm and family. Will have to stop by the store some time!

  • Reply Russell Bricker March 20, 2015 at 7:58 pm

    I think the Junk Gypsy program is the best i’ve seen in a long time. It is the most informative and educational in what they do. I do laugh at some of the things they do,but you have to admit-everything comes out great! Keep up the great work girls and i too would love to go to “ROUND TOP” to visit your shop! Thank you…..
