Talk about busy! Excerpt:
They sell raw goat milk to about a hundred customers for $5 a half gallon, but that’s the least of what they do from their five-acre sustainable farm next to Silver Star Mountain, north of Camas.
Lorrie and Shaun Conway have spent 22 years building their farm and sharing it with the community. They’ve also raised two daughters: Ashley, 25, who has spent the past two years in Zambia for the Peace Corps, and Amber, 22, who is studying to become a veterinarian.
The Conways built their entire farm themselves, including the house, milking parlor, cheese kitchen, barn, pastures, orchard and corrals.
“We drove every nail,” Lorrie said.
“The Conways are a power couple,” says Eric Lambert, small acreage coordinator for Washington State University’s Clark County Extension Service. “They run a model property. They both have full-time jobs off the farm. They run a farm, and they still give back to the community.”
