A few weeks ago we had some friends visiting Israel for the first time. Since they landed in the middle of the night and woke up to a plumbing disaster we were looking for an easy, low-key, kid-friendly activity not too far from home for their first day. Luckily for us, we stumbled upon a woman offering tours of Chai Farm, an organic farm about 15 minutes from home. The kids (and their grownups) had an absolutely wonderful time milking goats, making what turned out to be utterly delicious goat cheese, feeding turtles, holding a tiny 3 day old goat, carding and spinning wool, and even eco-friendly arts and crafts. We had a great time, and the (very reasonable for what you get) admission fees are even used for charitable works, so doubly good reason to visit Chai Farm on Moshav Mevo Modiin if you're local. (Do call first though, their opening days are a bit unusual.)
And yes, we do realize how long his hair is getting. This was about two weeks ago. By now, all you see is a mop of hair coming around the corner ;).
