Love of the land and animals help Lorrie and Shaun Conway build their farm life near Camas | OregonLive.com

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.”

Salutation Recipes

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
