Welcome to Trent Family Farms, LLC
We are Mike and Alexa – Together we operate a small farm in Cloverdale, Oregon, with lots and lots of chickens and sheep. Our main focus at this time are the chickens, or should we say what they produce: We sell farm fresh eggs. Our eggs are available for sale at the farm, from select local retailers, and can also be found served at many Portland area restaurants.
Mike was born and raised on the farm in Cloverdale, Oregon, and has farmed all his life. Starting as a young boy in 4H with sheep and throughout his working years as a dairy farmer. Now semi-retired he has returned to raising sheep. Alexa is also a native Oregonian, born and raised in Coos Bay. She is just beginning her farming journey – jumping in with 500 chickens and loving every minute of it. In addition to the working animals, Alexa and Mike also keep a goat named Edgar, a sheep named Ernie, a small herd of donkeys, and four dogs (Daisy, Nicky, Rosie, and Squeak).
Employee of the Month
May – Charlotte
A few weeks ago, returning home from Tillamook and near the turn to the farm, we looked out over the field. There was the usual group, Anne Shirley, Mel B, Stubby and Charlotte.
Mike excitedly says, “Look at that!”
I looked over at the field again and exclaimed, “Oh Wow!”
Next to Charlotte were two beautiful, brand new lambs.
Later that afternoon I carried the two new members of Trent Family Farms up to the barn, Charlotte following me all the way into the corral Mike had prepared for them. She has taken excellent care of her two late spring babies, while all her friends are beginning to wean theirs. Each day, she feeds, loves and helps each baby grow.
Because of the wonderful surprise she has given us and the love and care she gives them, we have chosen Charlotte to be the May Employee of the Month.
