Life in Chimacum: Farm-to-Table Living on the Olympic Peninsula

If you drive to Port Townsend from Seattle or via the Kitsap Peninsula, you’ll pass through a four-way stop adjacent to a quaint general store. This small pause in the drive is Chimacum, a delightful agricultural valley that’s an ideal spot for home buyers looking for more land and a farm-to-table lifestyle. Along with space, Chimacum offers a central location with easy access to the outdoor activities of the Olympic Peninsula, the Victorian culture of Port Townsend, and the commercial and workplace opportunities of Kitsap County and Seattle beyond.

Custom Homes in Chimacum

Chimacum offers potential for home buyers seeking larger properties. Located in unincorporated Jefferson County, Chimacum faces fewer building restrictions, but you’ll also likely need to bring in utilities and have a well and septic installed, which Estes Builders can help you navigate.

Here are just a few of the highlights of owning a home in Chimacum:

  • The Chimacum Corner Farmstand is a must-stop for visitors and residents alike. Find local produce, baked goods, natural foods, a nursery, and much more.
  • Stop by Finn River Farm & Cidery to tour the barn and sample their craft cider, grab a bite, attend a concert, and shop for farmware.
  • Indulge in fresh, local food and baked goods at Farm’s Reach Cafe.
  • Though Chimacum is flat and agricultural, it’s just a short drive from the water—head north to Port Hadlock and Port Townsend—and reach the trails of the Olympic Mountains to the west or south. Take a day trip to nearby Marrowstone Island to wander coastal parks.
