Negev Nectars - Sustainable Milk and Honey CSA Box in America
Added: 2009-11-25 21:08:06

 

“A land flowing with milk and honey” – that’s one of the most well-known passages from Exodus describing the Land of Israel and one of the first biblical expressions to make its way into the English language. Today, Israel is known for its abundant variety of high-quality food products made from these very ingredients.

While olive oil and dates from Israel are widely available in the United States at supermarkets and health food stores, a new American company called Negev Nectars – based in the Tri-State region – is making sure that the very “best of the sustainable best” from Israel will be delivered to American doorsteps, three times a year.

Volunteer tourism is a relatively new field in which travel benefits not only the tourist but the community that he or she visits.
