About Us

Meet the owners!

Richard and April moved to Missouri in 2009.  Richard is a retired Air Force Nurse Corp officer with a background in critical care and trauma and is the owner of the Lazy J. Farm and Ranch, LLC. The Lazy J allows Richard to fulfill a lifelong dream of raising clean food animals. 

April gave Richard his first Aussie as a birthday present in 2004, and he was hooked. 


April works as an Access and Reimbursement Manager for a rare disease company and manages everything "admin" for The Lazy J. April grew up in a dog breeding family. Her mother had a well- known kennel called, Tsang Po, where she bred and showed some of the best Chow Chows in the world.
