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

Lots of Calls For Birds

It was a really good Christmas with family on the quail farm.  We loved the time with our new grand daughter.  She is so good about being passed around and not fussing.  She does let us know when it's time to eat or be changed.  Good to be grand parents and let the kids deal with that. Just as expected, we are getting calls daily for quail. We can't help them since all of ours are pre-sold. I tell them to book the birds for this time of year delivery with whomever they are buying from but they just do not want to do that. It would help us all out immensely. I really hate to see the hunters unable to hunt since they don't have the birds.  But we all don't want to carry over a lot of unsold birds.  No worries about that the last couple years.  Just wait, next year I'll have a lot of late birds and noboby will want them.  That has closed some growers in the past.  So far, so good.
