Fourth Generation Joins the Ozark Fisheries Team

Published on July 13, 2011

Ozark Fisheries, a family-owned and operated ornamental fish and beef cattle operation, is pleased to announce the addition of Joseph Cleveland to the Ozark Fisheries team. Joseph, a fourth generation fish farmer, is the son of Lawrence and Jana Cleveland and great grandson of Ozark Fisheries’ founder, Lawrence Bailliere.

Joseph grew up on the family farm, working summers throughout high school and college. He attended Missouri State University majoring in business. Joseph is the general manager and currently running the day-to-day operations at the Ozark Fisheries facility in Martinsville, Indiana. We are excited by the addition of Joseph and look forward to everything he will bring to the Ozark Fisheries team.

Ozark’s business includes the production and marketing of goldfish, koi and beef cattle. We have been serving the pet industry with quality feeder and fancy goldfish, including shubunkins, sarasa commons, red fantails, calico fantails, and black moors for more than eight decades. Over the past several years, our product line has grown to include rosy red minnows, koi and butterfly koi, snails, tadpoles, crayfish, mosquito fish, along with koi and goldfish food. We are also a cow/calf beef producer centered on the Angus breed. We have farming operations located in Stoutland, Missouri and Martinsville, Indiana. Ozark Fisheries was established in 1926 and is celebrating its 85th birthday this year.
