GMA founder, Gamal Mostafa, acquired a small plot of agricultural land in Egypt after 40 years away from home. The idea was to build a relaxing getaway family farmhouse fenced with assortments of orderly set subplots of fruits and vegetables. In addition, the farm would have horse stables and a barn, which is how the outset of the farm was initially. It all took off from that enchanting farm to become an extremely busy farm as Passion evolved into Purpose.
GMA acquires an additional 600 acres and proudly becomes the owner and operator of 1000 acres of agricultural land located on the Alexandria-Cairo desert road, Egypt. This new land boosts operations in both human resources and farm production.
