In the Ottoman Empire, large pieces of land that could be driven by double oxen were expressed as "farms". Prior to this, a small farmer was a large unit of land that the family could afford, but later it gained a meaning that meant big agricultural enterprises. Farms were given through “has, zeamet, timar” or property. In other words, they were the high-ranking statesmen, especially members of the palace, and the money-rich farmers who saved money. Some were operated through partnership, while some were leased by undersecretaries. Some of the farms later became farmers. Büyükçekmece farms can be evaluated in this context.
