We call these men and women heroes, but they are just farmers working every day in their land, and it looks natural for townsmen to get every day fresh products from the farms.
They are not aware of the challenges to be overcome by those farmers. Exceptional time raises exceptional people, these are not heroes but committed individuals to let humanity prevail above any crisis.
Hammana Hima farm is a 10.000 sq. land with the ambition to become the model Hima, for sustainable farming, nature gastronomy, ecotourism, bird watching, and education.
Hammana Hima farm is running already for 6 years producing cherries, apples, coins, kaki and different kinds of vegetables trying to use environmentally friendly pesticides to set an example for sustainable farming and to preserve biodiversity. During this period we are working in the soil and taking care of all our plants, trees and crops.
The Hima Kitchen is now, one of our priorities, the kitchen of the Hima Farm using the local products. Its an experience of “nature- gastronomy”, a way to re-connect people, involve local people and create jobs. All that while raising awareness among all the categories of the population about nature best practices: like using traditional and authentic way of farming, using traditional crops with optimizing quality and products. The kitchen is functioning with basic tools and it needs to be equipped with all the needed material to be fully operational and to help locals overcome the crisis. And our other challenge is water, our large water pond which is used to water the Hima farm is leaking and needs waterproofing.
