Ancient Egypt is of course famous for it's pyramids however ancient Egypt also developed one of the worlds first agricultural systems! Did you know that Egyptians pioneered the use of canals and irrigation channels to direct water from the Nile River to their farms? Or that the plow was invented in Egypt as early as 2500 B.C? The plows were used to break up the fertile banks of the Nile, where many of our farms stand today.
Natura was founded in 1999, however, farming has been in our blood for hundreds of years. We are proud to be a leader in the Egyptian agricultural industry.
