Schwartzman Dairy is a place not easily forgotten, and usually discovered through word-of-mouth. It offers a lovely experience and a trip back in time to the world of the pioneers of Zionism. Most of all, it is a rare opportunity to enjoy authentic, good quality products, in a charming, friendly setting. Their specialty is cheese, along with all the things that go with it: olives, honey, bread, salads and wine… Take a seat in the garden of the one hundred year old Schwartzman’s house and try a tasting plate composed of fresh or patiently ripened cheeses, made from cow, goat or sheep milk. All labneh, camemberts, tomes, and cheddars come from the family farm and exude their more or less powerful flavors. The olives grow nearby, at the foot of mount Chorshan, the delicious lafah, a kind of pita with herbs, are served warm from the taboon (oven). And the salads and lemonades, prepared on the premises, are a refreshing addition to the meal. Or perhaps try one of the wines selected by Ruby and Ziv. To end on a sweet note, try their creamy malabi made with goat milk and carobhoney, served with coffee or fresh mint infusion. Finally, don’t forget to stop off at the shop. All the products tasted during the meal as well as others can be purchased there, prolonging the pleasure of this utterly enjoyable outing!
