If you’re probz wondering what the hell is hydroponic farming, let us tell you that it’s basically regular farming, minus the soil part where it is substituted with a different material that's made to support the plant. Yeah, it sounds a bit complicated but all you really need to know about it is that it’s good for the environment and it helps grow the delish produce.

‘’The brand specialises in hydroponic farming, but in places where it’s impossible to plant. That is why our slogan is ‘greening Egyptian deserts,’” says owner Ashraf Fala to SceneEats.
