About Us

Meet the owners!

Richard and April moved to Missouri in 2009.  Richard, a retired Air Force Nurse Corp officer with a background in critical care and trauma, is the owner/operator of the Lazy J. The Lazy J allows Richard to fulfill a lifelong dream of owning a farm and raising animals. It is not unusual to drive past the Lazy J and see Richard in the pasture scratching cows, or laying in the grass spending time with the new born calves and lambs. Richard spends his days caring for the animals, and managing the thousands of daily chores that go along with a working farm.

April works as an Alzheimer's Market Access & Reimbursement Manager for Biogen. She also serves as general flunky for The Lazy J, managing the financials, website, and communications.
