The seeds of our farm are cultivated in 2008 at the foot of Tauros Mountain range, in a little farming village called Yaka -Tlos near Fethiye. Since 2009 we make livestock farming (goats and bees). We are producing artisan cheeses from our herdís milk. Our goats are fed in forest and mountainous terrain. The seasonal changes in the forest determines the diet of our goats hence the variety of our cheeses.
Since our establishment we organize cheese workshops and group events in our project building. Ours is a Wwoof acreditated farm sharing projects with volunteers and visitors since 2010.

There are on going routines of work available in the farm, ranging from construction to animal care, and from cooking to cheese making. Volunteers all around the world can apply after considering below important key points:

A type volunteer / if you want to learn cheese making you are expected to;

-stay minimum 3 months
-for the 1st month only farm work is available, no cheese making!
-after the 1st month, those who are enthusiastic and considered as well matching can join the dairy work :)
-dairy work will be in shifts with other volunteers.
-farm work will continue for the whole period of stay.
