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.
