We are a guesting farm in the heart of the Israeli Negev desert. Since 1989 we are offering a true desert experience, .established in a unique location, right on the entrance of Har-Hanegev nature reserve, far from any infrastracture. NO white noise, no radiation.... just you, mother nature and the amazing night sky.
Our hosting is personal, congenial and homey. Each couple / family stays in a private succah -a sort of rain- and snowproof hut with windows and door that is well ventilated during the summer. Eight cozy huts or succot are offered for guests from around the world, awaiting for a unique vacation experience.
Each succah provides electricity by solar energy, clay water jugs comfortable beds and more. There is no running water or toilets inside of the succot. We have central ecological toilets and showers, that are offcourse very private and neat.
A typical work day of a volunteer is compound of morning assignments and after-noon/ Evening assignments, such as:
feeding the farm animals: horses, donkeys, ducks, chickens, peacocks, cats and dogs
cleanings (gardens, trails, toilets, huts, dishes...)
Volunteers are asked to work maximum 6 hours a day. we are very flexible with the different assignments and projects and try to fit them according ti one's capabilities and talents.
*we serve only vegetarian food.
*In the summer we also open our pool, which normally operates from april till november. The pool is open for all guests and workers of the place.
On the vast free time volunteers are enjoying the peaceful desert tranquility and exploring the nature around us.

Whoever seeks for leaving in nature, though with a friendly wormth and the security home lets you. Just like any other of our guests that are looking for the "true vacation" we offer- a vacation for each one's soul and spirit, our volunteers will experience the desert live. Pure beautifull nature, fresh air and water, organic gardens, great friendly vibe among the employees and hardly any cellphone reception - life as it ment to be.
Come to our place to disconnect from the world and reconnect to yourself :)
