Gracia Farms is the first Emirates hydroponic farm in the Middle East and the region using NGS system. Through this project, Gracia Farms are aiming to spread the culture of healthy food, the love of planting in order to reach food security and global excellence in agriculture. Gracia Farms started when H. H. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan (God Bless his soul) gifted the farm to the founder, Hamed Al Hamed, who was Sheikh Zayed’s poet at the time. Al Hamed's love and respect for H. H. Sheikh Zayed drove him to create a way to return this gift to the UAE by implementing a high-tech Spanish hydroponic system at the farm to revolutionize agriculture. Al Hamed also created a union with other farmers, based on the love for UAE and the passion to leave an impact in the agricultural sector.
