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

We Were Spared !! Hey!

We ended up with about a foot of snow.  The fly pens are loaded down, but have not collapsed. I guess we did an exceptional job of supporting them. I think we may have lost a few birds due to depth, but not hundreds.  I am supposed to deliver a few quail and pheasants friday but we can't catch them as of now.  I am just so glad it won't cost a lot of $$ to fix pens. COME ON SPRING!!!!
