Wafra (Arabic: الوفرة‎) is the southernmost area in Kuwait, within the boundaries of the former Neutral Zone. It is part of Ahmadi Governorate and is well known for its fertile soil and farms. It is parallel with the Saudi border. Wafra and Abdali in the North, are the only two cities in Kuwait known for farming and the animal sector. Wafra Farms are fed by the underground lakes. The farms have a very original cone-shaped mud dovecotes with hundreds of birds. People tend to visit the Wafra Market to buy fresh vegetables.
