“We also have exclusive exclusivity with De Ruiter East Africa and other breeders. We are among the few rose farms growing the best breeds of red variety roses on large hectares such as Rhodos and Ever Red, “Hanif said.
They are cultivating fifteen hectares of Rhodos and they are planning to increase up to seventeen hectares as they move more to direct sales since they have witnessed an upsurge in demand on this variety worldwide.
Two hectare of their total area of the farm is dedicated to propagation, trial houses, packing area and staff accommodations while the rest of the farm is filled with roses’ greenhouses.
The farm compliments and cares for the environment by actively planting trees. To date, they have planted over 15,000 trees in the farm. The trees have become home to various varieties of birdlife, adding natural life to the farm.
