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

There was only one kind of strawberry from what we saw, 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 children.

Summary

In total, 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 criticism most people have, the entrance fee is too high, and you do not get value for money.

You can argue that the entrance fee to picking vegetables is very similar to The Salad Trail. But at The Salad Trail, there is a wider variety, 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.
