  • Description

    Description

    We moved from an urban city to a rural area two years ago as a family. We started a sustainable farm and we produce organic vegetables from heirloom seeds. We also have plenty of fruit trees, olive trees and grape vines, chicken, goats and sheep in the farm.
    -We use plenty of different ways to protect our crops naturally
    -We use ancient techniques to preserve our harvest
    -We have a large heirloom seed collection
    -We cook with natural, pesticide free products from our garden
    -Our farm is located very close to Ancient City of Ephesus and House of the Virgin Mary
