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

STILL BUSY

We are very busy with bird pick ups and deliveries.  Getting calls almost daily now for quail. Even getting requests from preserves, which seems strange. They should have gotten their birds already. Been getting a lot of request from hunters for a place to work their dogs. We have been sending them to a couple of close preserves. If I had the energy I would set up an area and charge a little for dog working. Weather is still fairly warm so the younger birds are getting bigger and stronger before the nasty stuff hits in the next couple months. Hopefully we won't lose many because they are all pre-sold. This is so enjoyable. I think I talked a friend of mine into putting up a few barns and fly pens to help supply all the bird needs.
