Agros has a population of around 800 inhabitants and is situated in the heart of the island of Cyprus, in the region of Pitsilia, along the Troodos mountain range. Surrounded by vineyards, almond, hazelnut and walnut trees, the village is rich with typical products from the Mediterranean diet, which make up the foundations of the diet of the inhabitants, including sausage, lamb, and sheep meat, and jam from various fruit.
The Mediterranean diet is not limited to Agros, it is found throughout the entire island. In fact Cypriots living in rural areas self produce almost all of the food that appears on their tables, such as chickpeas, beans, figs, beetroot, and dates.
