A Way of Life

Originating in Illinois and Minnesota by way of Wisconsin, Clan Murphy migrated to Oregon in 1995. Here in the “mythical state of Jefferson” we have found a profound sense of belonging and community.

Sometimes more commune than nuclear family, we in the Clan have also long had a vision for a common artisanal “small is beautiful” way of life. A way of life (and earning a living) in which each contributes his or her respective talents to certain common family projects while pursuing individual goals.

Idylls Press is one of these “common” projects.
