Badia Farms is starting a farming revolution in the UAE with the GCC’s first indoor vertical farm. We have a growing reputation for supplying the finest micro-greens and herbs to Dubai’s top restaurants, caterers and chefs.
IT ALL STARTED WITH A QUESTION: "CAN WE GROW RARE FLAVOURS FROM AROUND THE WORLD IN THE HEART OF THE MIDDLE EAST?"
THE UNIQUE INDOOR FARM IN DUBAI USING TECHNOLOGY TO BRING FLAVOUR & RARITY YEAR-ROUND
The techy term for it all is hydroponics, which is a technique for growing produce without soil. Seeds are planted in a sterile, soil-less growing environment and then grown in nutrient-rich water. Water is recycled, and everything from air and water temperature through to humidity and lighting are controlled to create the perfect growing environment.
Vertical farms can grow non-native produce in locations where traditional agricultural methods are impossible. Also, there’s no exposure to the hazards of traditional farming, such as bugs, diseases, pesticides and weather.
Vertical farming is the practice of producing food vertically in stacked layers, vertically inclined surfaces, and/or integrated in other structures. It uses a combination of indoor farming techniques and controlled-environment agriculture (CEA) technology.
Vertical farms such as Badia Farms control environmental factors such as humidity temperature and gases, use artificial sources of light, and apply fertigation systems. Looking ahead, new methods of vertical farming are being researched and developed – and we will constantly adapt to the changes in technology.
Named after the Arabic word for ‘oasis’, Badia Farms is bringing a green hub to the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic yet agriculturally challenged cities.
