A Quaint Olive and Sheep Farm

This opportunity would be a wonderful experience for volunteers who are seeking to grow as individuals. It is an ideal location for those looking to get in touch with nature and meet like-minded individuals. My farm is also only a 15 minute bus ride away from the beautiful seaside town of Foca. This location is also located just an hour bus ride from the big city of Izmir. Know that tasks given can be completed at a flexible schedule, with no early morning or late night work expected from volunteers. This is a wonderful opportunity to unplug and enjoy nature because I have limited access to wi-fi on my property. It can be available for basic communication purposes when necessary, but the town of Foca is just a short distance away with plenty of wi-fi cafes! At this time, I request that COUPLES ONLY apply for this position.

My name is Umit. I was born in Turkey before spending 19 years living on the East Coast of America. I moved back to Turkey in 2005, and I now own a small sheep farm in Foca. It is currently just me managing my property, so I greatly appreciate any help I can receive. Travelers will be treated like family during their time in my home. You can expect to enjoy sharing our cultures, making and enjoying delicious meals together, and learning from each other.

Umit was the most amazing host and made this experience so special. He is so kind and a wonderful cook too. The work was fair, some days harder than others but some days were lighter too. Umit showed us the town and nearby farmers markets as well as introducing us to his friends and family. His place was clean and truly a joy to stay in. For those looking to connect with nature and unplug, this is the right experience. I will never forget the truly wonderful time we had with Umit on his farm.

Our stay with Umit was home away from home. He made us feel like family during our stay in Foça. He took us to the local farmers markets, and we had great fun preparing delicious meals and sharing conversations with him. Umit is managing his home alone, so he really needs a lot of help on his 10 acre farm. There is always work to do, and the work is not always easy. However, Umit balances the workload so that some days are easier work. I 100% recommend this experience for hard workers, and those who have appreciation for the fruits of their labor. Hopefully we will visit Umit again someday!
