Gağgı Farm

The Gağgı farm is located in the Ovacık national park in the west part of the mountains of Karlık near Izmir. The area is in the middle of nature with only a few people living here and there. Izmir airport is only 90 minutes from here, Bayındır is the next bigger village and 25 km far away, the next small village is 7 km from here. Our land is 50.000m2 in middle of a unique ecosystem and a very rich flora and fauna. 900 years old chestnut trees, 500 years old oak trees and 50 years old cherry trees are situated here, where we are living. Cherries, walnuts, apples, pears, grapes, different kinds of plums and many more fruits are at the land. We have built 8 yurtes ( mongolian tents) from 12- 40 m2 in our ateliers and are using those for sleeping, kitchen, hamam/bathroom or workshop. We are building all our furnitures and yurtes and everything out of local materials from the woods nearby or local.
Fruits and veggies are produced and processed here for own uses and some for barter or sharing. Lavender and other herbs are picked as well. A flower garden feeds our honey bees. Besides of all this there are many beautiful walking paths to discover, planting trees and live the rural live.
Who are we? Veysi is a former carpenter and internal design architect and the guy who builts everything. Türkan is the woman behind that all and loves saving and sharing seeds, cooking and organizing.

Only Turkcell GSM coverage available in the farm area. No WI-FI connection available but you can use host's phone in case of emergency.
