I learn to appreciate more in life after i volunteered here. Also the staff in the farm really supporttive and sometimes they cook for us. I really enjoy the farming and view around the farm. The schedule also always respected. My room also very spacious and tidy. Will miss all the memories in the farm :').

The place is beautiful. The host, Emin Ali, is nice and welcoming, and concerned for your comfort. The workers only speak Turkish, but they still try to talk to you and invite you to have tea breaks with them. The volunteers are supportive. The experience is great.

As a lover of nature and green landscapes, I had such a wonderful 3 weeks. The work can be exhausting some days, but mostly it's fun if you participate in different activities. The staff are very friendly, I already miss them ( Rustam, Tamer, Ramadan, Ahmet, Kaan, Anver, Saadat) Thanks for Mr Emin and his generous mother. PS, the farm is far from city 3h bus ride, so you only can visit it Friday and Saturday.
