homegrown happiness.

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 here, the kramers give me a little surprise of my own…}

 

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!!!

ain’t nothin’ small ’bout this dream.

through a series of VERY fortunate events that took place last fall, we ended up working on the biggest project of our JG lives. a project that really felt more like a dream.

it was a serendipitous day. the day that PB teen walked into our store…and that day embarked us upon one of the most exciting & creative adventures we’ve ever been a part of.

so we are proud to announce….coming this FALL…an EXCLUSIVE junk gypsy collection for PB teen!

yes i said it. POTTERY BARN teen, y’all! pottery barn teen!

we’ve sketched and designed and re-sketched and re-designed.

PB teen has made several trips to texas as we’ve brainstormed into the late hours of the night and we’ve trekked to the POTTERY BARN headquarters in san francisco, we’ve had endless emails, phone calls, conference calls, and product testing….and nowwwww….coming this fall…the finished products will be ready to be in your home! and i promise, this stuff isn’t just for teens…it’s for ALL ages.

we’ve dug deep on this collection. deep in our creative souls. we’ve spent hours upon hours thinking of all the elements and colors and symbols that we feel most represent JG. that most represent the things we love…all things vintage fleamarket. LOVE of life. love of the road- wanderlust. the south. independence. rockstar. and that most represent the 3 messages we want to convey with this line.

DREAM big.

follow your HEART.

BLAZE your own TRAIL.

this really is a dream come true for us…we’ve had to pinch ourselves through this whole amazing process. we’ve been allowed to be as creative as we wanted to be. we’ve been allowed to dream big. the sky REALLY was the limit with this collection. the pb teen team has been the most amazing group of folks on earth to work with. we have met our creative kindred spirits.
