Hi Nev,

Welcome to the small farms forum and thanks for the post.

Anything is possible, if you are on a small budget you might have to sacrifice the land size, quality of house or location. If you are prepared to move further away from the metroplotian cities or larger country towns the price of land reduces. If you are planning on starting the boarding kennel business, ensure you have some money put aside for working capital as any new start up business will require start up funds until you have paying customers.

Regarding farmer's markets, most are very receptive to new stall holders. Some markets don't like too many farmer's selling similar products, they like a good mix of farm produce. There is a farmers market association who you can contact for furtehr information and to search for local farmer markets in the area you are looking to move to
https://farmersmarkets.org.au/find-a-market/

We also have a Facebook discussion group which you may like to join and post the question to, the group is pinned to the top of our Facebook page.

Regards,
Charlie
