Bar’s Farm In The Desert

In 2002, I founded Menat Madbar Farm, an individual agricultural tourist farm located in the south of the country, near Sde Boker. 

Unfortunately, with the outbreak of the war, all bookings for the months of October and November were canceled, leaving us without a livelihood and struggling to meet payments. We need help to  survive this challenging period and to revitalize and sustain our business.
