Aydıngün Village


AYDINGUN is a beautiful village with a panoramic view of one of the world's important crater lakes, Cildir. Ismet Kiziltepe (68) is an enthusiastic traditional farmer who provided us with the rare ancestral Emmer and Flaxseed seeds, when we met him in 2006. He has since then became the spokesperson of the project! He shares with enthusiasm his vast knowledge of traditional food and agricultural heritage of the region at every occasion. Ismet Kiziltepe and his relatives take part in Anatolia Foundation Organic Certification Program.
