A LITTLE OF OUR HISTORY:
The Country Barn Gift Shop was opened in Branson,
Missouri, by Lester and Lois Vining and their daughter Betty in
1989, but our story began long before that…
For seven generations our family has called this part of the Ozarks home. Lester and Lois bought this farm in 1939. For $450.00, they got a little shack of a house and 100 acres. Lester’s father, who was “Fiddlin’ Jake” Vining in the story the “Shepherd of the Hills” told them they had made a huge mistake and would never get the place paid off. Lots of hard work and several years later, the farm was theirs. During that time Lester built a new house for Lois and a barn for himself which is now our 50-year-old Country Barn.
Although Lester and Lois are now gone, Betty and the family carry on the tradition of providing quality products, in a warm and helpful atmosphere. We run a family business with the help of Betty’s sister Beverly, son and daughter-in-law Greg and Nicole, daughter Tracy, and plenty of grandkids and neighbors.
We welcome you to our farm where most of the family still lives. We have a wall of photos of our seven generations and lots of stories to tell you about them.
