We are a family run business and small farm on the edge of Girdev Lake in the Taurus mountain range. We are nestled against the valley wall and at 1,800 metres it means that the temperatures in the summer months are always cooler and the atmosphere drier than the sweltering coastal plains. Even in July and August a blanket can be welcome at night.
In spring as the sun warms the earth, the snow melts and the plateau becomes a temporary lakebed; full of life, it is home to millions of frogs and insects. It is these upon which the many species of birds feast, when they come to the area to nest and breed. The spring also brings an abundance of wild flowers, plants and herbs, enriching the natural biodiversity of the area. We grow most of own vegetables and fruit. In addition we have our own livestock, (cows, sheep, goats, chickens, geese, ducks, quail and peacocks), there are lakes with fish (carp, trout). We make every attempt to be self-sufficient and work together with local farmers and absolutely no chemicals are used.

A place to sleep and full board is provided in exchange for help in various tasks. Working hours or days are not defined, it is up to the volunteers to participate in any ongoing work.
