how it all began

In 2003, about 50 mature olive trees were transferred from the Kfar Daniel vineyard to the farm. Ever since then, the trees have been cultivated and grow as a husband with little watering a pipe during the hot summer days. These days we see that the trees are typical Israeli trees adapting and do not need additional irrigation, Syrian olives and olive trees of Nabali variety.

Syrian – the most common variety in the region, from which most of the oil was produced in ancient times. It is especially common in the Galilee region. Its source in Lebanon is near the city of Tire, hence the disruption of its name. Its fruits are juicy and taste rich and aromatic. It tastes slightly bitter and bitter.

Nabali – an Israeli species similar to the Syrian variety that ripens before it. Is particularly prevalent in Judea and Samaria. The fruit is more round and tastes lighter and more delicate.

The farm began its activities in October 2008 with the olive harvest celebrations held every year on the farm.
