Ron Hostetter started the cutting board business in 1980.  He has been making butcher block cutting boards ever since.  Ron has started a whole sale business in 1990 and continues that business - Hostetter & Company Wood Works-  to this day. 

Karen Diamond joined Ron in 2006 and together they formed the business Gypsy Wagon Wares.  They make beautiful hand crafted folk art and cutting boards.  They sell their wares at music festivals all over the country.  Some of the major festivals that they attend are: Swanneefest and Waneefest in Florida, Delfest in Maryland, Telluride, Rocky Grass and Folkfest in Colorado and Harvestfest in Arkansas.  They vend from a gypsy wagon made by Ron.  They usually are favorites wherever they go.
