  • Description


    My name is Erez and my family is the 4th generation of farmers in the countryside Hefer Vally in the center of Israel near the sea and the cultural capital of our country, Tel Aviv.
    Our vision is to create a small community of people who believe in:" here are good ships and wood ships, ships that sail the sea, but the best ships are friendships, may they always be!"
    The farm is focused on wood projects such as tree rehabilitation and a Sawmill. Furthermore our areas of interest are getting larger every day and now days we are starting to create a small sheep herd and starting to work on various tourism projects (like family harvest of raspberry). Also we have blacksmith courses and eco stoves and ovens building projects.
