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

Seems Everyone Wants Their Orders Now

Last week, starting Thursday, a lot of our pre-order guys wanted their birds. I guess being November and cooler was the reason. We either delivered or had pickups of around $10,000 worth of quail.  My phone is still ringing often with bird inquiries,but I just can't help them out. Debbie & I have figured out a way to catch about 100 birds at a time in about 30 seconds with a funnel system. Even with my disabilities I can help a lot and it stresses the birds very little. This is fun and rewarding for an old retired business guy.
