Here are several previous similar questions with answers which should help - If you meant can YOU do it yourself - if you are aksing the question, assuming you mean real or synthetic stone (as opposed to laminate or resin countertop) then the answer is no - you would need a pro. Be sure you have a discussion with the vendor about rim support and how narrow the countertop is behind and in front of the sink - commonly when doing this, and especially if putting in a large farm sink (one big sink (very heavy when full of water) rather than double sink) it should be reinforced under the narrow parts with glued-on wood or additional layer of stone, to minimize the risk of cracking there. Better safe than sorry - it is something I always recommend if the countertop is not laminated with or supported on 3/4" plywood.
