A very interesting tour of an observant kibbutz, whose goal it is to use natural methods to limit rodents, pests and other parasites of the crops. We ate delicious dates, fed the donkeys, and had a fun tour.

So much to see and learn here. One of the original kibbutz that produce organic herbs, honey, pollinating bumble bees, and a stash of hidden guns where nobody could find except a few men from back in the day.

We booked through a travel agent so all those questions were handled by her. I would recommend contacting them directly to ask 😀

We reserved through Kenes Tours. It was about an hour and half and there was a charge but it was bundled into the rest of our price so I'm not sure how much we paid.
