How do people behave in local cultures, what do they like, what are they influenced by? We will be a stop where you will find the answers to all of them. We can't wait to hear what you've collected and what you've seen. You can learn how to prepare sauces and marmalades according to the season, milk sheep, vegetable growing techniques, and enjoy our delicious Turkish dishes.

    Help with daily chores, herding sheep, gardening.
    The rule is to do everything with pleasure. If you don't enjoy it, there is definitely a job that you will enjoy. We accept volunteers who are flexible, truly in harmony with nature and can act according to nature's calendar. We take your responsibility by accepting you. We hope you know that you take responsibility in the same way.
    farm life is a whole where all production and responsibilities should be considered together. It cannot be divided into all working hours. Sometimes you have to wait 5 hours for a birth, sometimes 5 minutes. Sometimes the season does not allow, the rain does not allow, the work is not finished, the time is extended.. Ask for details before you come.
