  • Description

    Description

    We are Nachshon and Ayelet, we leave in Rishpon, near Tel Aviv. Rishpon is a small and quite community village that has the benefit of being close to the center of the amazing city of Tel Aviv.

    We are farmers that have orchards of Prsemon fruits (Kaki fruit, Afarsemon) and grows them mainly for export for ~30 years. We have 3 children that are not leaving with us any more and come for a visit about once a month.

    The work is mainly with Nachshon, that starts every morning and works for few hours. He needs some help with the maintenance of the orchards (cut branches, hang eco traps for insects, irrigation) and in October-December in picking the persemon fruits.

    Your accommodation will be next to our greenhouse. We grow fresh vegetables and fruits for our own use. We may need your help in weeding and picking and will happily share these with you. We also have few farm animals, 1 cat, 1 dog, chickens and goats. We may need some help also with feeding the animals and take care of them.

    During your stay, you will learn about the life in the farm, agriculture and gardening, growing your own vegetables and fruits and experience the quite and peaceful atmosphere in the country-side village. We will be happy to meet you, to hear from you about your life and will be glad to discuss many other topics with you. If applicable, you may be invited for dinner with us and our larger family.

    We are also close, about 20min walk from a nice and sandy Mediterranean sea/beach. We are also close to Apollonia, an old archaeological place that has some cultural sessions during most of the year.
