It’s been almost 4 years now since I relocated to Turkey from the UK, learning a new culture and way of life. As the years went by, my partner tried many jobs working many hours 6 days a week for very little money. We decided we needed to do something if we wanted a real shot of making a good life for ourselves in Turkey.
After many discussions with family, friends and other farmers we came up with the idea of building a Chicken farm to sell free range eggs. We knew a profitable egg business would require more than raising healthy chickens and so before putting the idea into practice we had to put in the ground work.
We made many connections with supermarkets and shop owners to get a rough idea of the demand in the market. Our customer base mainly formed from one to one meetings with supermarket owners which then grew to word-of-mouth and advertising across Facebook. It started out with a dozen eggs for our family and friends to selling to large supermarkets.
