Between the Red Sea and the Sinai mountains, Habiba Organic Farm is a piece of desert turned into fertile land.
We aim to show the Bedouin community in the area that they can transform their land too. Twenty thousand square-meters of Habiba’s land is dedicated to growing crops such as eggplant, fennel, asparagus, oranges, limes, zucchini, dates, corn, tomatoes, figs, mulberries, artichokes, quinoa, olives, okra, swiss chard, moringa, and herbs such as mint, basil, lemon balm and rosemary.
We are in the process of complying with Demeter standards. We also have an exchange with the Bedouin organic farmers in the mountains.
