Groups and communities are getting together in building and producing their very own organic farms. Soon after the growth of volunteers and farmers, the creation of large and freshly processing organic farms became permanent and began trading to local markets and across the globe–this has certainly inspired and spread throughout the world in diverse countries. Organically processed foods such as fruits, vegetables and even herbs have introduced more garden-fresh meals and other consumer goods. Naturally grown foods without any harsh chemicals and other artificial ingredients can keep the body staying healthy all while creating a better global community. The planet has offered many beneficial natural resources to provide everyone with clean products and nutritious meals–and these countries are a few of the many that possess organic farms.
As for one of the many countries that is close with agriculture and natural foods, Turkey has numerous organic farms that produce their very own foods for self-consuming and trading. One of their farms is called the Bugday Association Project and the program became official and launched in August 2002. It first started back in early 1991 in Bodrum, Turkey. The farm processes many foods such as natural cafe foods. The community have been very active in building up their farms and spreading around awareness, promoting organic agriculture and leading to representations of healthy, fair and sustainable consumption. Bugday is always accepting volunteer workers with a passion to help out.

The home of wild herbs and flowers, Russia’s first and most famous farm is Natura Siberica. The farm is about 33 hectares, which makes it the largest organic farm in Europe. With help from the community who have a passion in natural processing, they plant and grow rare Siberian herbs and flowers. With the use of these plants, the company is able to create products such as skin care, hair care, body care and other natural-based goods that don’t include any chemicals. The farm is built in Khakassia, because many rare Siberian herbs grow in that region — which makes the processing more beneficial. To spread awareness, a hotel will be constructed at the farm so people can visit as well as partake in harvesting the herbs.
