    Description

    New farm in Kaz Dağları (Ida Mountain) forest. We are in Karaköy/Bayramiç. I am Kerem, the owner of the place and always accompanied by friends. We are currently building our living space, planting trees. We are into natural farming and permaculture and try to apply the principals. We are just starting.

    We have built 3 Mongolian style yurts (gers). This is also a project we want to develop and build them for other people to generate income.

    We pick grapes in september, walnuts and apples in October. Olives in November. Plant trees in November/December. Harvest and process food from march to august. Gardening, landscaping and carpentering/building all year round.

    There are always friends coming and going. Nobody is regularly employed. With friends and volunteers, there is always 3-4 people around helping out.

    We work around 4-5 hours a day. We avoid hours of strong sun and rainy weather. Work can be hard at times but never long.

    No internet or cell phone coverage. We trek up the hill nearby (about 10 minutes) and there we can check mail and phone.

    We have limited electricity for now. A fuel generator just to use for powertools. And a battery to charge cell phones.

    Space for parking camper vans

    The road is bumpy and narrow. But I can go up to the place with my own car which is not a 4x4. Camper vans with a high roof may not be able to enter because of the trees blocking the way.
