Here is a blog from a family who moved from Akron, OH to Ona, which is in the Huntington area. They purchased 100 acres of land and turned it into a farm. It has now become their family business. Here is a link to their Facebook Page as well as their blog. They had a nice article in the paper as well but I can't seem to find a link for it on-line.

They appear to have the country living they wanted, but they are still close enough to a bigger city for convenience.
