My family and I currently live in Belfair, WA. 3 acres with garden, chicken, ducks, rabbits.
Farmer's market in Belfair is pitiful and called Saturday market because there are usually no farmers in it. Well one, but he usually sells flower and a few vegies (http://davisfarmbelfair.com/
). Near by in Port Orchard is a much bigger one but I do not get there much. The growing climate here changes every half mile. My last frost date is 2 weeks later than a friend down the road.
A lot of people raise and grow their own animals, enough to support 2 feed store. A lot of people sell eggs.
There are currently a lot of nice 5+ acre sites for sale. I am actually looking for something different in the area as well. How about a 6 acre property bisected by a road (not well traveled) with 160' of salt water tide flats for $99K? Undeveloped lots can go for 30-50K for 5 acres.
PM me if you would like and I would be willing to give you my contact information. It would be easier to give you the good and the over a phone conversation.
