I was looking at Nursery near Aberdeen to source from Juel's Nursery seems to be the closet "good" one.
I say "good" because I have not been there yet. She did reply to my email and I am in the process of setting up a tour.

http://juelsuniquenursery.com/home

Anyone have any other suggestions?

I am just getting started, I need a good source for Fencing Posts, Chicken Wire, Glass, Bricks, Rain Barrels, Chicks, Baby Goats, Metal Roofing, Seeds, Pots (might just use plastic cups), Hay/Straw.
Would like to build some cold frames, chicken coop, 4 chicken paddocks, Plant some trees, start some seeds, goat shetter, goat proof my existing fencing(its currently horse spaced).

I need to buy some general hand tools, (pruning, digging, turning compost).

Most important I think I need some community, I need to get out there and meet other people, see some sites, see what others are doing.

Any Suggestions?

Cedar Falls Nursery is pretty great. It's a little bit of a drive up 101, but well worth it.

Hometown Feed will have a lot of what you are looking for. Nice folks.

Levee Lumber and the Dennis Company are your local alternatives to chain building supplies and hardware stores.

AJ's Indoor Gardening has some harder to find stuff for plant starting and whatnot.

True, but you can combine it with a trip to Raintree and come home without all that pesky money weighing you down.

So far I have made it into Hometown Feed, Dennis Company and AJ's indoor gardening.
AJ's Indoor gardening was great, I spent way to much money at Dennis Company since they have things I need.

I really need to figure out where I am souring my no climb goat fencing from (the cheaper the better),
I am willing to drive to olympia to save money since I go there once a month anyways.

From what I am seeing Cedar Falls Nursery doesn't open until march.
I think I am going to buy most of my trees from Raintree Nursery this year.

I would compare prices on fencing stuff by calling Kipert's Korner Feed in Olympia. I found a lot of their fencing is cheaper than most places. (I put up a 9' high deer fence last year at a place outside Olympia).

And Burnt Ridge Nursery sells at the Olympia Farmer's Market. You can order from them and they'll deliver to the market I think for free. (But yeah, it's not open until April).

For seeds in Olympia I would go to the Olympia Food Co-ops. They sell locally adapted Uprising Seeds and Seed Savers Exchange seeds. They usually start selling those in early Feb.
Olympia Co-op also has plants and trees for sale from local nurseries (usually just smaller stuff like blueberries, currants, etc.).

I live 10 mins from burntridge and 20 from raintree. they are both reputable nurseries and sell top quality plants. they both have friendly staffs and burntridge's owner is willing to talk to you. both offer to deliver plants via mail.

I have also been to North fork nursery and the owner told me they don't sell any plants unless they have produced fruit. he had a szechuan pepper tree that i really want. they have a lot of ornamentals but plenty of fruit bearing ones too. good prices considering the plants aren't seedlings.
