I believe we do have creative and talented people. Today I was in South area of Salmiya near fifth ring road buildings. I was searching for laundry, so I entered to different pathway.

Early morning of last Friday I drove down to AlWafrah Farms. I knew there is a special Farmers Market organized every weekend. It was my first visit to Yasmin Farm owned by AlBan Dairy and couple of investors. Well, it was really late when I reached the farm as I got lost during my way. I used Google Maps and my car navigation GPS till I lastly reached the farm.
However, I entered the farm and parked my car in the parking permit area of the farm. Guests mostly welcome to have a tour in the farm. Therefore, I paid 1KD/per person for our tour inside the farm. Myself and my family members went inside the golf car with a tour guide to the main factory area.
The farm attractions are AlBan Dairy Factory, Cows, Sheep, Goats, Vegetables and Fruits.
On the way out guests can buy Yasmin Farm products from Yasmin’s Store. Different products are available such as vegetables, fruits, diaries, Honey, Spices and Olives. I enjoyed the visiting the farm, but got stressed of driving down to the farms and getting lost for hours. Don’t get stuck from what I experienced.
To reach the farm go to Google maps on your smart-phone and type your destination to Yasmin Farm [map].
