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

More Booking Orders - Now More Facilities

I contracted another 2,000 birds, quail order for fall. They also want some pheasant and chukars. I accepted it so now I have to build another barn and 2 more flypens. Buy more brooders and feeders and waterers. I am not going to spend over $5,000 more. At least not this year. It is exciting. I am getting that ole' business drive again but without the huge stress. After the stroke and all it did to my body and mind I really thought that drive was gone, but it's back at least enough to enjoy it. I promised my wife I wouldn't go wild. She worries, I'm grateful.
