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

Round 2 for Eggs

I received round 2 of my spring eggs today and have filled my incubators up. The first batch was really fertile and I'm sure these will be, too.  Still do a little work daily as I strive to make the farm more handicap friendly. Grain crops are growing in the flypens and I am still getting calls for fall birds every few days. I am not doing anymore
contracts but people still want on the list if I have any left. I am entertaining more expansion next year as my wife is hinting at quitting her part time job and staying home with me and farming the quail. What have I started!!!
She says we could take off in January & February and spend winter on the beach. We'll see!
