Located in central Israel, Havat Iyar is a small organic farm growing super greens and medicinal plants. Our mission is to bring spiritual consciousness through farming, inner-growth, and healing. We wanted to create a safe space for people to come and be who they are while working together, learning together, and connecting back to the land. Our growing methods are rooted in permaculture practices to care for the well-being of the Earth and its people.
Throughout the process of surrender, we learn to trust.
This year is Shmita, the sabbatical year for farmers in Israel.
The land is getting its rest and we are refraining from farming and selling produce.
Havat Iyar is a place of spiritual and physical healing.
Observing Shmita strengthens the spiritual values that we represent.
When we take a step back from working the land, we are able to connect deeper to what it means to be Jewish farmers living in Israel.
Through this mitzvah we are strengthening our faith and trusting that Hashem is guiding us every step of the way.
Please Help us keep this vision alive!

Build Our Team
After a long year of shmitta, we are ready to take the farm into the next level. However, in order to move forward, we need to have consistant hands on deck. Our goal is to have a project manager on site to manage volunteers on the farm, educational workshops and ecobuilding projects. Click below to set up a meeting with us to sponsor a worker.
Why We Do What We Do
We came to Israel with a dream of reconnecting with our Jewish agricultural roots. Farming to us is a huge part of our spiritual growth and personal healing. We have such a strong passion to share the Earth’s gift with others, which is why we expanded our family garden into a farm and started Havat Iyar. We love facilitating meaningful experiences that come with a healthy lifestyle and building community. The world needs a lot of healing and together we can revive the ancient connection between the food that we eat and the land of Israel. To us, this is our way of taking part in bringing Moshiach.
