 Inside a 50-hectare organic farm in Abu Dhabi

A tour of the Al Rawafed Agriculture Organic Farm in Abu Dhabi makes you feel you are somewhere in the middle of lush tropical greenery and definitely not in the middle of a desert.

Spread over 50 hectares off Sweihan Road, 20km from the main island of Abu Dhabi, the farm is a verdant paradise with acres of banana plantations, corn, and fig fields, and netted farms growing tomatoes, bell peppers, lettuce, herbs and even a vineyard with five varieties of grapes.

Nearly 10 tonnes of fresh produce is picked, packed and sent to supermarkets and restaurants daily from this farm, making it one of the biggest local sources of organic products in the emirate.

Be it tomatoes, onions, aubergine (eggplant), sweet corn, herbs, potatoes, cabbage, lettuce or fruit like bananas, figs, melons, watermelons, and pomegranate – any organic dinner you rustle up at home could have well come from the Al Rawafed farm.

“We follow different kinds of farming methods here like a greenhouse, net farming, glass house as well as open field farming. The biggest challenge is, of course, to keep the crops alive without using pesticides,” Marius Pakker, managing director of the farm, told XPRESS.
