Refikler Farm

In 2012, we started working on cultivating medicinal herbs on a 10 thousand sqm land; surrounded by the forest and 25 km away from the city; in order to realize our dream: a collective communal life.
It took us a long time to prepare a land suitable for cultivation. Within these 2 years we built places to stay and planted 400 trees of 55 types. We grew and planted about 20.000 saplings of over a hundred different herbs, including vegetables and beans. The land already had around 200 olive trees which give us the olive to eat and share with our guests. Looks like we’ll get our olive oil this year.
We have bees which give us our honey and we prepare pomegranate sour, bitter orange sauce, pickles, olive brines, spices, dried tomatoes, carob flour and etc. We also collect a great variety of herbs- other than what we grow- from untouched places in nature. We take out the essence of myrtle, lavender, rosemary and thyme and we make our own St. John’s wort, calendula and bitter melon oil. We make creams with our own oils and essences.
We don’t make a lot of anything, we as a collective have decided to keep our distance to mass production by caring about nature and trying to keep our foot print as small as possible. We don’t use any fertilizers other than goat shit feeding freely on the mountains. The money we earn from selling our products will not become a subject to enrichment. We want to live a life, simple and modest.
We want to have a vague division of labor, a division which gets more and weaker as we get more success in becoming a real collective.
