A Souvenir of the Desert
Deep in the heart of the Negev Highlands lies Carmey Avdat Farm - a lush desert oasis in a hidden river valley with green vineyards. The grape vines are planted on the remains of an ancient vineyard, and the original terraces and irrigation system are the same ones used by farmers who cultivated grapes and produced wine here more than 1500 years ago.
Eyal, the farm owner and artist, has a workshop on the farm where he transforms discarded wine barrels, horse shoes, stones from the area, and branches from the grape vines into unique furniture, artifacts, household items, and souvenirs.
We hope you enjoy your desert experience with us!

The metal shop at Carmey Avdat Farm is a place of pounding hammers, pillars of smoke, noises, colors and creativity. The shop produces tools, metal products, and artifacts for the guest houses, wine racks, candlesticks, bells and other items that are sold in the farm store. There are also group workshops in metal work held in the metal shop.
The metal shop is a prime example of recycling. Any scraps, axles, or horse shoes are converted into useful products or decorative items.
Eyal creates a variety of products in the metal shop that are inspired by winemaking and the rock drawings on the farm. His works of art - which he designs himself - combine metal and local stone and are original and unique.
