We are putting our homestead on the market soon, and I thought it'd be a good idea to post about it here first.

We have a beautiful 5 acre lot outside of Langley, Freeland, and Bayview. We've spent three years developing a permaculture homestead. It's looking and feeling wonderful, and we'd love to pass it on to someone that can keep the spirit of the land alive. This is a special place, and I'm sure you'd love it!

We are asking $200k, and would finance to the right person(s) with half down.

Let me know if you are interested in more info, including pictures!

We will be taking down our primary dwelling at the end of the season (a big yurt), which will leave a garden shed, chicken coop, and hoop house. There is also a vintage, partially renovated "canned ham" travel trailer perched on top of the forested hillside that will stay on-site. It could be used as a temporary housing setup, or you could throw it up on Hipcamp or Airbnb. We've had caretakers and renters in it for about a year now. There is also a big red barn that (ideally) would be used communally between the existing neighbors and the new buyer (that arrangement would need to be negotiated).

This land has been our focus for the last few years. The main "homestead site" started as cow pasture, and is now well on its way to becoming a productive food forest. We have done our best to plant a large variety of edible perennials, as well as your typical vegetables and insect-attracting flowers. We also raised chickens and have installed some fencing our recently-acquired sheep. The property is about 1/2 forest, 1/2 pasture - a great mix. Plenty of space to set up a home, graze sheep, garden like crazy...

I'll get some pictures up soon.

Thanks. Aloha!
