When we first set up Pastoral Vadi in 1999 we decided our main crop would be Valencia type oranges and, along with some lemon, mandarin, grapefruit, bergamot, olive, pomegranate, plum, peaches, apricot, kaki persimom, quince, fig and black and white mulberry trees, we planted more than 900 saplings. These have now grown, all give good crops and we are thinking of introducing new varieties. We preserved and increased willow, sweetgum, plane, bay, chaste, gale, oleander, iris, eucalyptus and pine trees which are next to the river.

In between the rows of fruit trees we grow vegetables and fodder plants. In accordance with ecologic methods we grow tomatoes, pepper, eggplant, cucumber, lettuce, arugula, dills, parsley, coriander, spinach, chard, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, red cabbage, beetroot, potatoes, onions, garlic, beans, sweet peas, corn, peanuts and strawberries for our guests and for the people who are working and living here.

Some of our products like canned goods, jams, tomato and pepper pases, sauces, pastas and dry soup ingredients are stored in our cellar for future use.

We plough the soil with our horse, Rüzgar. We keep chickens, ducks, sheeps and goats which are all reared on natural fodder/grain for our animal product and fertilizer needs.

In our green house which we built with the support of South Agean Development Agency we grow seedlings and vegetables.
