I am retired from Turkish Air Force. After I retired, I built my dream farm. but since my wife doesn't like the farm life, I do the work on the farm alone. I have two sons, 11 years old and seven years old. I want them to learn English. Since I do not have the opportunity to travel abroad, I would like to host a family for a while in my own country, on my farm. I speak beginner level English and intermediate level Greek. My farm is located on a fertile land, just opposite the village of Sindel, 600 meters north of the Bakırçay river, 5 km south of the Bergama district of İzmir province. It is open all around and has clean air. Sunrise and sunset are clearly cool as well. It can be cultivated in four seasons. Currently, 200 walnut trees, more than a hundred miscellaneous fruit trees, tomato pepper eggplant squash cucumber bean red kidney bean corn onion garlic are planted. And I do all this with organic farming methods, I do not use chemicals at all. Its area is 11,000 square meters. It is surrounded by wire mesh and secured with continuous cameras. There is a 24 m² bungalow house in my farm, consisting of a bedroom and an open kitchen and living room. It is made entirely of wood. Electricity, water, internet, TV, refrigerator, stove, oven, vacuum cleaner, one double bed, one triple bed and one double sofa are available. There are also one cat and nearly 40 chickens in the farm. Daily feeding and care of animals, collecting eggs from the nests, hoeing the tree bottoms from weeds, watering the plants through the drip irrigation system.
