Bryant Helvey is a licensed Professional Engineer and Operations Manager for Graham Contracting. After graduating from Stanford University, he developed a career working on large bridge construction projects in Alaska, Colorado, and Washington.
Bryant is also involved in numerous conservation and livestock organizations, including 4-H, the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, Cochins International, the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership, and Backcountry Hunters and Anglers.
Bryant and his wife, Lindsay, met before high school while participating in 4-H. Lindsay owns a veterinary practice and they live on a small, local family farm with their twins, Landon and Bryn. They have dedicated their lives to knowing and raising livestock. Bryant’s passion is poultry, and he has traveled the United States and Europe experiencing and learning about the history and culture of poultry raising. Lindsay treats horses professionally, has a special love for pigs, and grew up raising rabbits on a significant scale. On their farm they currently raise sheep, chickens, ducks, and geese for pleasure and food.
Bryant has a life-long desire to improve the future of human culture and our relationship with the natural environment. Growing up in a rural community, agriculture and the 4-H organization were critical influences that have led to a life of studying, practicing, improving, and teaching anything related to food, animals, and the environment. Bryant is thrilled to be involved with Carnation Farms, where these values and processes are promoted in his own community.
