New venture: Alpaca farming
The couple sold their Portland (Ore.) home in 2003 before the real estate market crashed to purchase a farm in central Oregon. Connie, who grew up on farms, knew she didn't want to raise livestock.

But Connie recently returned to work to help fund an expansion—they've bought a neighboring farm.
