About
Steeped in the Biblical history of the Galilee, Kfar Kedem recreates the day-to-day life of this ancient scenic land; threshing the grain, milking the goats, pressing oil from fresh olives and wine from fresh grapes to produce household staples, just like in ancient times. These tangible experiences connect with the roots of our heritage, the values and spirit of Bible times, which continue to be a part of our lives today. Enjoy a wide variety of interactive, hands-on experiences, dressed in authentic period clothing. Our professional guides will enrich you with historical and spiritual content, while you enjoy warm hospitality and delicious, rustic dining in our shepherds' tent.

Despite the fact that we were an enormous group of 300 on a Fr. Mike Schmitz and Jeff and Emily Cavin's Pilgrimage, we still had a really great experience. The information, hands-on experiences, and food were all impressive. I was especially grateful that they offered gluten-free pita bread. It was the only lunch over two weeks in the Holy Land were I could eat the pita though it was served daily at each location. I was so surprised at the profoundly simple way the goat cheese was made before our eyes as it has been made for countless generations - with fig leaves! While I was skeptical about tasting it moments after being made before our eyes - I thought when will i have another chance to experience this as an ancient shepherd would in the wilderness? It was delicious!!!

In a trip filled with wonderful, profound experiences, our visit to Kfar Kedem was one of the highlights. In a bucolic setting, my wife and I spent a few hours immersed in a life of another era, complete with clothing and food from that time. seeing goat cheese made before our eyes, riding donkeys and handling homing doves were some of the particularly memorable moments. The food wa delicious. And Menachum was so sweet, so soulful and so spiritually real. Truly a transformative experience!

From milking goats and using the milk to make goat cheese, and blowing shofar s made from the goat horns; to grinding wheat to bake the pitas we ate for our yummy lunch; to shearing sheep; to riding donkeys; to dressing up in robes, our kids loved every moment at Kfar Kedem. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

We were a group of 16 visiting kfar kedem. We had a super time. It was one of the most fun activity we did this trip. Recomnended for all ages. Our guide Chanoch was extremely patient, kind and knowledgeable. Great sense of humor. He accommodated us and waited for part of our group that was delayed in very heavy traffic. I would recommend this place highly.

Great experience! We got the feeling of living 2000 years ago! Enjoyable for all ages- from 8-70. We dressed in period attire, milked sheet and goats, made goat cheese, sheared sheep too. We then rode donkeys and snacked on delicious homemade pita, hummus, and olives.

We had the best time at Kfar Kedem. Amir is both knowledgeable & fun. My 26 year old son & I got dressed in the garb, milked the goat, made goat cheese which was delicious! We made pita bread , rode Vanilla the mule , ate olives , tahini, & goat cheese , & learned about old time farming . Then we took a homing pudge on to Akko with us, attached a note & released it… & got an email the next day that it arrived home w a copy of our note! It was a great experience! We highly recommend it !

We came to “kfar kedem” in order to celebrate my son’s bar mitzva and we had a great time. Milking the goats, making the pita bread and riding the donkeys was so much fun for the kids.
We will come back!!!

Beware of “tourist prices”!! Instead of supporting Israeli tourism they will try to rip you off. We wanted to book a family tour, and saw really great options and prices on the website. When we emailed them asking for a quote, we got prices that were double!!! When I asked for one of the options on the web I was told “there are programs and prices for Israelis, living in israel, and others for tourists”. No shame!!

Dear Eran, We read your response with care. The prices are indeed different, because the program and terms are different. The tourist program requires specialized English speaking guides and include food, which Israelis do not get. However, we understand you found this unpleasant and will consider making changes while preparing next year's price list.

I’ve been to Kfar Kedem twice, once with a camp and recently with the family. It was so fun and different each time. Our tour guide, Amir, gave us an interesting insight into Talmudic times while allowing us to pet and feed the goats, milk them, make cheese and back our own pita on an outdoor stove/oven. Even though it started to rain we still had a great time. The costumes top off the experience and we got the best pictures to look back on. Kfar Kedem has other activities that I hope to get to experience on another visit.
