After just one night in Istanbul our trip to Turkey in July 2013 started with a visit to Cazgirlar village in the Bayramiç district, Çanakkale Province. The village has only 50 people and is pretty much as remote as you can get in these parts. Many of the young people have left the village and a lot of houses are in bad shape due to no maintenance for years. It can be picturesque but not so good for living in. New life has been brought to the village by Agrida organic farm which participates in the TaTuTa system of Bugday association. This brings Wwoofers to the farm and village like Luis from Portugal who kindly showed us around the village and fields and pine forests around. We didn’t get to know that much about the farming side of the Agrida but seeing how the milk collection works in the village was very interesting. The atmosphere in the village is nice and it would certainly be worth a larger photography project.
