  • Description


    Hello travelers,
    My name is Kenan and I own a 20.000m2 farm in the hinterland of Mersin/Turkey.
    There are at the moment around 15 milk cows and some calves,100 chickens and chicks and several growing trees like almond,olive and walnut trees.
    Our short time goal is to make this farm running on its daily routine : feeding the animals organically, cleaning their area regularly, watering trees, preparing and delivering our organic products orders. Any plan for future developments will be welcome!
