Our date farm is located in the stunning Bam region of Iran. This unique area is known for its historic adobe buildings, which are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Our farm stretches at an altitude of about 1,000 meters above sea level, braving the hot and dry conditions of the region.
On our farm, we grow date palms, citrus fruits and various grasses with great dedication and conviction. Through the diversity of crops, we promote not only sustainable agriculture, but also the protection and conservation of natural resources.
Our collaboration with the farm has been going on for a proud 8 years. During this time, we have established a close and friendly relationship with the farmer and his family, who run the farm as a family business. This personal connection allows us to follow ethical and ecological principles in our farming and ensure high quality products.
Our agriculture is based on organic farming and traditional methods. We consciously avoid the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides in order to protect nature and ensure the health of our customers.
Another significant feature of our farm is the use of permaculture. This sustainable farming method relies on the diversity of different plant species, including date palms, citrus fruits and grasses. The grasses shade the soil and conserve moisture, while the natural flavors of the citrus serve as a natural insect repellent.
Our date farm in Iran stands for responsibility, tradition and closeness to nature. We are proud to be part of this sustainable farming community and to offer high quality organic products from the Bam region.
