  • Kibutz Hazerim:

    Hatzeris is a living example of the changes going through the Israeli kibbutz. From a kibbutz where most of the activity in the past was in agriculture and a minority in industry, Hatzeri has become an impressive tourist center that is a shame not to visit.

    A trip to the premises can begin with a tour of the Natafim factory and see the production process of jojoba oil, from picking it in the field to packaging it in a bottle, continue with a tour of the “sculpture path” in the kibbutz, lunch, and a visit to the first sites that talk about the history of the kibbutz.

    In the kibbutz about 42,000 dunams of wheat, barley and food for grain, vegetables mainly potatoes and in addition carrots, cabbage, fennel, paprika spice, rosemary, and avocado and citrus groves.
