I'm moving out east to NB or NS and I'd love to hear from anyone living there.

I think I'd like to end up in NS, preferably somewhere from Yarmouth, along the South Shore, to Halifax, but I think I'll be moving to NB initially to take advantage of the cheap land.  I want to farm, so I want to be in the Maritimes to get a feel for the markets, regulations, (lack of) abattoirs, and to be able to scope out properties when I'm ready to buy.  I'm thinking that the South Shore would be the best place for year-round grazing and mild climate.  I would also like to live by the ocean because I find I can breathe freely without allergy or asthma issues.  

I'd like to know what your experiences are, if you're originally from there or a transplant, what the organic market is like near you, if you've dealt with processing animals for sale and probably a bunch of other things.  

If you could chime in, I'd appreciate it.

I've got a friend out there who does some permaculture stuff. I've reached out to him to see how he's doing. If I hear back I'll put you in touch
