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. *******************************************************

Bought Another Incubator & Barn

I placed the order to have another brooder barn built. It will be a metal building 20 x 50. I am going to attach a 20 x 150 fly pen on one end. The builder said he would get to it in April. I decided to get another 1200 egg incubator. A new one cost about $750 delivered. I checked out Craigslist for a couple weeks and found a like new 'Sportsman' model cabinet with 3 hatching trays. Just what I wanted for $300.
I am feeling physically better and want to get busy if the weather would warm. Starting to get more inquiries about buying birds from us. I have a feeling I could sell way more than I can raise. Spoke to my son and his wife about them getting more involved and then maybe we could expand.
