Our Ayval?k variety olive trees were planted in 2004 by Ahmet Edip Önder, who sadly passed away in 2012. As his descendants, we are continuing to look after these trees. Our land has many challenges; water shortages and occasional frosts, so we take it year by year to keep up our olive oil production. Each year, we add more organic matter to our soil, which gives us higher quality olives in return.
Zen Crafts is established in 2012 with the intention of marketing the olive oil we get from our garden. We have high intentions of not only being present in the Turkish market but hopefully sell our products abroad. The only way we plan on doing this is by creating the highest quality olive we can.
