After a long search for a life in harmony with the nature, away from the bustling city, we found ourselves in the untouched village of İzmit, Fethiye. Since 2016, our farm has been growing with agricultural production and related constructions. We produce vegetables, fruits, micro greens, farm animals, eggs, honey, seedling, sapling and pot plants appropriate to organic agriculture regulations. Our purpose is to produce and sell these products on local organic markets and on internet, so that we can support a simple and peaceful life that we have always dreamt of. In our farm we are working with peasants and building a strong relationship with them. it would be our pleasure to see like minded nature loving individuals to join us in our humble dream.

We are living and working with peasants in the farm. Some of these people have never experienced a city life. So it’s a great opportunity to meet with these amazing people and have a glance of their pure, vivid life and their point of view of the world. Turkey is still unaware of the benefits and importance of the organic agriculture. There is a very settled understanding about the producing stage. So you can witness the change that we are trying to make and get a idea of how it was and what it could possibly be in the future.
We have lots of daily chores that are required to be done in our farm. Most of the time volunteers helps us to harvest our products or planting in fields and greenhouses with our peasent workers. We also have tasks for people who likes painting, fixing etc. So I’m sure there is a job suitable for anyone. We would never ask anyone to do something that they don’t find appealing to them and we try to find a different tasks for everyday so you don't get bored by doing same tasks everyday. If you tell us a bit about yourself and what you are hoping to gain from this experience, i am sure we will find the most convenient and comfortable way for you to help us in the farm.

We have one big bedroom -4 twin bunks seperated by curtains (4-8 people)-, a kitchen, a living room and a small bathroom just for volunteers. We use wood stove to heat the place, so be ready to use it :) We expect from visitors to cook their own meals and clean their place daily. Of course we provide all ingredients. So you'll be able to taste all of our organic fruits/vegetables and more.
There are plenty of amazing experiences helpers can have in their free times! Helpers can have forest hikes, swim in a lake, camps, build a fire and visits to the city centers. Our farm is very close to the city center that it only takes 1 hour to arrive with bus and the bus passes in front of our farm three times a day. Helpers can also spend their weekends in İstanbul which is only two hours away from our village. In summer time, it’s possible to wakeboard in the Cabble Park which is only a 45 minutes away from our farm by bus and you can also take a trip to Black Sea to visit the incredible beaches and swim. In winter you can go to Kartepe that is two hours away for the winter sports and activities.
