Agricultural Utopia in Israel

At Kadesh Barne’a, an arid desert community, a miracle of agriculture takes place with cherry tomatoes. We’ll meet the local farmer and marvel at the accomplishment that’s been achieved with state of the art technology.

Stop at Ramat Negev Winery which was founded in 1997 by a pioneering couple decided to establish a unique, different factory, a winery that will be based on local produce only. They surprised their doubters by creating a successful winery in the middle of the desert.

Cook lunch together in the Overland’s pop-up kitchen.  Use the vegetables you’ve picked in the morning to cook the Israeli dish Shakshuka, a spicy egg and tomato dish.  Enjoy the wines from the area along the food and the scenery.

Continue to Avi Arzuni’s farm- Using ancient Nabatean agricultural techniques, Avi has managed to grow a variety of fruits and vegetables year round relying solely on flash floods.

Visit the Yatir Winery located in the southern tip of the Judean Hills which has a rich and fascinating history of wine production. View the extensive and impressive wine press, a testament to a developed wine industry of over 2500 years, dating back to the first reign of the kings of Judah.
