We visited M’shoch BaGezer in march 2021. During that visit, I photographed the entrance fee sign. But when I checked in November 2021, the prices went up.

Inside the buildings, you can find several big rooms. There are rooms with games for kids and a small tractor exhibition. Here are several photos:

On Saturdays, there is a Druze corner where you can buy food.

Strawberry Self Picking

To pick vegetables, you join a tour. But strawberry self-picking is independent. After purchasing tickets, you are pointed to the field. Here it is:

As in all other farms, you can eat strawberries from the plants. And that is what we started doing.

Strawberries

From what we saw, there was only one kind of strawberry, and it was not that tasty. Perhaps the taste was because we visited towards the end of the season (middle of March).

Near the strawberries, there are several rows of flowers. But their season probably also almost ended, and many flowers wilted. Here are several that remained:

We spent about half an hour picking strawberries and returned to the rooms with games for the children.

Summary

We spent a little more than one hour at M’shoch BaGezer. It included both strawberry picking and games rooms. And though I love agrotourism, we left disappointed. My main complaint is similar to most people’s criticism: the entrance fee is too high, and you do not get value for money.

You can argue that the entrance fee for picking vegetables is similar to The Salad Trail. But there is a wider variety at The Salad Trail, and the tour lasts about 2.5 hours (instead of 45 minutes here). The pricing of strawberry picking is similar to other nearby places, like Tutland. But other farms, for the same price, offer more than one field of strawberries. Thus, it is one of those rare occasions that I can not recommend a place.
