Baharash Bagherian, CEO of URB, said Dubai’s rural and agricultural-rich communities are best positioned to become a global benchmark for agritourism.
The public will also be able to visit the farm for educational, recreational, or retail purposes at the URB Agri Hub project.
The accessibility to the center, which is expected to provide environmentally friendly transit systems like 20 kilometers of dedicated bicycle tracks, will be enhanced by direct bus routes from key stations.
Farmers in the areas will be provided spaces where they will can sell products directly from their farms to visitors and residents.
The new hub will also feature a nature and heritage conservation centre, an agri-tech institute a restorative wellness centre and an ecotourism centre.

The ecotourism centre will offer heritage trips to ancient sites in the Middle East region.
The agri-tech institute will support farmers and provide investment opportunities to local inhabitants.
The new hub will also provide health and well-being facilities with sports-focused activities, which will promote medical tourism.
