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

It Has Begun - Yea!!

I received my first batch of 3,000 eggs yesterday and with the help of my father we racked them and put in the incubators. Plugged in the power default alarm ( sometimes us country folk lose power for no reason), this is a moneysaver. Hate to lose all the eggs due to no heat. I have my generator hooked up ready to throw the transfer switch if power is off more than a few  minutes. In 23 days the fun really starts.
