THE SIMPLE LIFE ON OUR OZARKS QUAIL FARM

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

Busy Day on the Farm

Were visited by very knowledgable lady from the USDA to test our quail. The NPIP tests. She did 30 birds for pollorum typhoid (blood test) and avian influenza (throat swab).  They were healthy so I am good for another year. Then we had a hunting preserve call for pheasants. Debbie caught them (she really wants them gone, they are so strong) and the guy came and picked them up. Should have most quail picked up Saturday. Money is coming in handy for Christmas. With the nights in the teens and 20's I am really glad I bought some heated waterers.
