THE SIMPLE LIFE ON OUR OZARKS QUAIL FARM

MISSOURI OZARKS, United States
After I retired I wanted to stay busy on our farm. My almost 30 year career was in the hunting & fishing industry, so raising the birds I had hunted for years was a natural for me. Being married to my best friend, wife & help mate is all I could ask for. My wife of 34 years and I love living on our farm and doing the chores it takes to maintain it. We are living a wonderful slow life in our retirement. Our grand daughter is such joy. Having a big garden to feed us, raising bees for honey, loving our pets and no debt. I feel blessed to have enjoyed this country living and sustaining our family through growing our food and simple ways my whole life. I am happy to see others across this great country deciding to live instead of just collecting more. A less-stress farm life is making us very happy. *******************************************************

New Years Beginning

It is now the first Monday in the new year. We have 5 inches of snow, but I am ready to start raising quail again. Yesterday we took 30 butchered quail and 6 partridge out of our freezer and tonight we are having a family and friend dinner at our house. Deer meat, fish and quail. I will cook them on my Big Green Egg cooker. It doesn't get any better. I am setting up my Quickbooks accounting program for this years business and before I started this days blog I just order 8,000 bobwhite eggs. They will be delivered 2000 at a time beginning April 1. I am feeling better and even though it is real slow I think my leg and arm is still progressing. Probably never get back to normal, but I will always keep hope and be happy in my skin wherever the Lord leads. Happy New Year.
