The Farm - West of Jerusalem, down the eastern slope of Mount Eitan by the Sataf Springs, lies an area that has known agriculture for the last six thousand years. Here is where Shai and his family founded the farm in 1974. Shai's cheeses are famous throughout Israel not only for their quality but for their unique flavors. Using a cheese cave with cultures that can date back millennia, Shai's cheese reflects the flavors of Israel and is preferred by many Israeli chefs. On location there is an organic vegetable garden based on the ancient technique of terrace farming, a goat herd of 170 heads and an award winning goat cheese dairy.
The farm is open to visitors on weekends. Check for tasting exhibitions and special culinary events. Group visits, Training programs, and seminars on goat farming and cheesemaking are available.
