........"real Appalachian farmers".......

An oxymoron

Are you saying there isn't? If so, you're mistaken

I'm curious how your search is going.

I've always thought of Ashville, NC as what you're describing.. but, is the nearby rural/ farming area the same?

David A Stone, there is a growing number of liberals or progressive minded people who both want to be stewards of the land through sustainable and organic practices, while also helping those who need a hand. It seems a beautiful way to bring left and right together, not necessarily an oxymoron, but an answer

No. buncombe County NC is blue, but that’s spillover from Asheville city. WNC is otherwise very red.

Not entirely, you forgot about Boone and Wautaga County.

The OP will have to define #4 affordable.
#4 with the other wish list = Big Bucks in WNC

This is a nearly 6 year old post, so I'm assuming that the OP has made a decision on where to live. Would like to hear how things are going.

I live in NC, am a Conservative, and really think the Asheville area would be (or would've have been) a good choice. I live 1.5 east of Asheville and am very familiar with the area. As some have said, the city itself is pretty expensive and liberal. But the outlying suburban/rural counties (Henderson, Haywood, and Madison) and more affordable and have some great farmland. In my experience, Conservatives and Liberal get along well there.

I hear in central Pennsylvania Harrisburg, York, and Lancaster are more liberal than surrounding areas but not as liberal as Pittsburgh or Philadelphia. State College I hear is liberal but not sure if Harrisburg, York, and Lancaster levels or Pittsburgh and Philadelphia levels. I also hear there's a liberal college town in either Snyder or Union county of Pennsylvania. Not sure exactly where though.

I'm on here to find the same thing as OP and I will happily define it. I am looking for someplace where my religion/race/relationship status and personal choices are not used to define me as a person. A place where everyone in my community is cool with whatever choices I make and encourage me to make them irregardless of wether they clash with their personal beliefs. Essentially I want a place that is close to my 'home' as I see it where I can be whatever mix of liberal and conservative I want without my neighbors shunning me as someone who supports gay rights or legalizing weed.
