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

Just Cleaning & Picking Up

A little boring on the farm.  With spring just around the corner and the weather being 65 one day and snowing the next we are trying to clean up the brooders and fly pens.  We pretty much made it through the winter unscathed as far as anything tore up or broke.  We built everything as strong as possible and it paid off. We are also just cleaning up around our big 2 acre yard. You know, fallen limbs, leaf piles, trimming overgrown bushes, garage cleaning, etc. Spring always feel so good. A renewal and I can get out more.  The winter cold really bothers my handicapped side so I got cabin fever really bad. Still getting fall orders for birds.
