Our family farm is located in the desert, with a breathtaking view of the mountains surrounding it. It is south of the Dead Sea and north of the coastal city, Eilat. We cultivate a variety of animals, vegetables and fruit. The volunteers on the farm work in different branches such as dairy work, egg packing (Free-range, of course), and goat shed maintenance .We work 6 days a week, anywhere from 4-8 hrs per day, depending on the amount of work which needs doing. Volunteering on the farm can be for short (minimum two weeks) or long term periods. We provide accommodation and food. Cooking is done communally and is vegetarian. Afternoons are social time and we encourage initiative for activities. Horses and bicycles on the farm can be a great way to explore the area, as well as hiking. At night, once a week, we and the volunteers run our small local pub. We offer a challenging experience which includes learning the workings of a sustainable agricultural desert farm, meeting new and interesting people, and the amazing atmosphere of the Arava desert.
