Çine Development Foundation was founded in 2009 in Çine, Aydin by our family where we started organic farming practices with 52 producers. By the end of 2017, it grew into more than 880 producers in 79 different villages amassing more than 14,000 acres. Organic Farming was initiated by Çine Development Foundation for the first time and its goal for the entire region is to help every farmer to do organic farming in the future.
In this specific region, most of the olive tree farms are on sloping land, nutrient poor soils and trees were cultivated to olive trees. Throughout the years, these wild-olive trees did not need much care except some trimming. However, with the efforts of our Development Foundation, our farmers are educated about taking organic measures to protect their trees in order to achieve the highest quality.
We are very proud to partner with these producers, who have a similar upbringing to our family, to bring you the best organic extra virgin olive oil.
