Lyndsey Stavely was born and raised in Cockeysville, Maryland. She and her husband, Mark, moved to York County, Pennsylvania. Lyndsey and her family stumbled across The Farmyard and it became “their thing” to do. She decided to write about the adventures they encountered on the farm.


Renee Wilson is the owner of The Farmyard, LLC. She grew up on her family’s fourth-generation dairy farm in Parkton, Maryland where she found her passion for sharing her experience of “life on the farm” with others. She graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Telecommunications and returned to the farm shortly after.

Have you seen Steve?

Steve is one of the founders of The Farmyard. He plays a role “behind the scenes” to make sure events are running smoothly, animals are well cared for and the property is maintained…. unless you find him at the wheel of one of his fantastic hayrides. Children can find Steve behind the scenes in every book.

A Bell and a Whistle features the story of The Farmyard’s 2000-pound gentle giant. The rhymes in this story will take readers through Whistle’s journey seamlessly. He finds a new purpose in life and learns the importance of making others feel special. For ages 4-9.

Nancy, The Hen that Wouldn’t Stay in Her Pen! This fun, rhyming book shares tales of our favorite Farmyard troublemaker. Readers will chuckle as they follow along a “normal day” for Nancy. You never know what she will get into next! For ages 3-8.


A Rescue for Rhonda is a story of a chicken who learns a valuable lesson of putting the happiness of others above her own. After a traumatic experience, she finds a new meaning of acceptance. For ages 3-8.
