  • Description


    We are a young happy family welcoming any enthusiastic volunteers to our family farm!
    We raise sheep, chickens, ducks and bees here.
    we'd like some help in our vegetable garden, and with the animals and on-going building projects.
    In long term we'd love to be self-sustainable i.e. no need to buy from any shops.
    Twice a day our sheeps need to go to graze across the property. We harvest them from the vegetable garden for our own consumption but is always depending on the changing seasons.
    We also plant grains such as wheat and barley, and we make our own flour for bread or pita and flatbread.
    We also grow some fruit trees throughout the season. And part of the farm is filled with rare medical plants.

    We need help with planting new crops, and in the organic vegetable garden. Also to take care of our animals and some building projects. There are many places in the area that you could go pick wild fruits or just to relax.
    We'd also like your help to preserve plants that are at risk of extinction here in Israel. We are located centrally and is well connected to the other parts of the country- there are frequent bus services to Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Beer Sheva. We welcome you as a member of our family and to share meals together :)
