Fodor's Expert Review Ya'aran Farm

Beit Shemesh Food/Candy

This small but popular farm, run by Yavshi and Bar Ya'aran, produces more than 10 types of hard and soft organic goat cheese from their herd of 130 goats that enjoy a life of grazing. It's best to come on a Saturday, when the couple bakes their own bread. If Bar isn't too busy, she'll explain her vision of living off the land, using only rainwater and solar power and windmills for energy. The farm is 8 km (5 miles) east of Beit Shemesh. It's open daily, but you must call ahead to visit any day except Friday and Saturday.
