Mr. Roberston founded the Duck Commander company in 1973. He w
as an avid duck hunter who became disillusioned with the quality of duck call products that were available. Robertson decided to make his own duck calls that were much higher quality.
He created the first product for his Duck Commander company in 1972. He patented the unique design and the business grew rapidly. Willie Robertson, his son, took over the family company in recent years. It has since grown to greater heights.
The fame of the Robertson family grew exponentially when their reality TV show Duck Dynasty was released. The country adored the family’s Christian faith and addictive personalities.
Maria Menounos, the show’s host, spent some intimate time with the Robertson family. She toured the company’s headquarters and went to Kay and Phil’s house for dinner. Maria noticed the modest living style of the family despite their insane wealth.
She ended up writing an article about her experience with the family. She notes that their double-wide home has remained the same despite their increase in net worth and fame. The couple clearly hasn’t compromised their values or way of life.
They have only added a little bit of closet space. Kay and Phil also proudly display artwork from fans across the United States.
In a revealing interview with the HuffPost, Kay reported that concrete was the only area in her life where she spent a lot of money.
“He let me put the concrete on the driveway,” Kay told Maria. “Now we have half a driveway!”
Phil agreed that pouring concrete for a driveway was a good way to spend their money. Now, the couple enjoys their half of a driveway.
The Robertson’s have also added some rocks in their front yard for an aesthetic charm. Even with an increased income, the couple decided to continue living in the home where they raised four sons. Phil and Kay are well-known for purchasing a lot of land surrounding their home. This land is primarily used for hunting.
Phil wakes up early every morning to maintain the land and prepare it for duck season. Overall, the couple owns 1,000 acres. There are over 70 different duck blinds that occupy these acres. Phil and Kay are estimated to be worth over $15 million.
