The Naama Farm offers the perfect outdoors activity destination for young children. Established in 1978 in the heart of the Western Negev by the Adiri family the farm now cares for a large variety of animals. Today it serves as one of the largest sheep and goat farms in the country, producing almost 1,000 liters of milk per day. Visitors are able to walk through stables and haystacks, feed newborn goats, pet ferrets, and milk sheep. They may even be fortunate enough to witness the birth of a baby lamb! In addition workshops allow children to partake in creating their very own goat’s cheese made from the fresh milk produced on site. They can also knead dough, place it on a special sa’aj oven, add chocolate spread or labaneh cheese with za’atar and finally taste fresh, hot pitta bread. Other activities include an animal-themed arts and crafts session and a demonstration on the production of olive oil from olive trees.
To end the visit guests are invited to enjoy a complimentary light brunch. This includes eggs, fresh breads, vegetables and a wide selection of the organic cheeses made on site – labaneh, feta, goats cheese, yellow cheese and hard cheese.
Opening hours: Sunday – Friday 9:00 – 16:00.
A visit to the farm including all the activities described above lasts about 3 hours.
