Conway Family Farm
: A Labor of Love :
Conway Farm is owned and loved by Shaun & Lorrie Conway. As a young couple, Shaun & Lorrie set out to make their dream of farming reality by building the farmstead, which is now Conway Farms, from the ground up. As the daughter of a cattle rancher you could say that Lorrie’s love of farming was inevitable and Shaun was a willing convert. Now, nearly three decades later, their passion for the farm is evident in everything that they do. The beautifully tended farm is an indicator of the care and concern that they put into the goats and the products that they produce.
: This is Us :
Shaun & Lorrie carefully attend to the pampered dairy goats, sheep and chickens that share their farm. They enjoy creating beauty in their gardens and delicious cheese and ice cream with the help of the spoiled goats, whom they affectionately refer to as “The Girls”.
Shaun spent his childhood helping his grandfather, a skilled carpenter and craftsman, and Shaun shares his talent in building everything that the farm needs. He is the master of the farm maintenance tasks. Lorrie loves creating new cheeses, or seasonally-inspired ice cream flavors with their delicious farm fresh milk, planning and tending the gardens and dreaming up new ideas that make the farm more efficient, and Shaun is always happy to oblige by making it all happen.
Shaun & Lorrie have full-time off-farm jobs, so they carefully share farm tasks to make sure the farm is run as a sustainable business and that the animals, land, and facilities are cared for with absolute attentiveness. Together, they balance a love of animals, hard work, creating beauty and healthy food while joyfully sharing the bounty from the farm with others. They believe that the farm is simply theirs to borrow and that they have a responsibility to ensure its care and health for the next generation of farmers. Shaun & Lorrie feel blessed to share this passion together, and in turn, to share it with you! Conway Farm is truly our labor of love.
: About the Farm :
We are the proud stewards of a 5 acre farm tucked away on Livingston Mountain in Southwest Washington just 35 minutes from Portland,Oregon. Formerly a portion of a prune orchard, we have slowly transitioned the land to a sustainable goat dairy and creamery. With its lush pastures, gently wooded hillsides and mountain views, this farm is our dream come true. We are dedicated to creating only specialty farmstead products; milk, cheeses, ice cream, flowers, honey and more. Producing only the highest quality products is our priority. By focusing on intensive care of the herd, soil fertility, animal health, and quality breeding we are able to produce an impressive amount of products on our modest farm. We are passionate about what we do and believe small farms are essential to the health of our food supply!
