Olive oil is recommended by cold pressing in a special method

Our story

Ashkenazi Farm was founded when the Ashkenazi and Ben Best families immigrated to Israel at the beginning of the last century, together with a group of pioneers from Bulgaria and in 1928 established Moshav Beit Hanan. There they met, Moshe from the Ashkenazi family and her son from the Ben Best family, got married and established a farm. They built a coop of laying hens, a goat pen, planted orchards and pecan plantations. And so, all these years, her son (whose husband Moshe died at a young age) took care of the coop and the farm and when she grew up, she passed the baton to her son Yossi and his partner Rina. And so, the Ashkenazi couple continued to treat the family farm with great love. Later, their son Mosh joined the care of the farm, which, on the recommendation of the father, Yossi, decided to plant olive groves on plots belonging to the farm. Over the years, the farm developed greatly, and a small cloth house was added to it, which provided a solution for the farm's vineyards. Then it was also decided to brand the oil and it was given the name: cloth and oil-house cloth and olive oil. In 2016, due to a need created by the growers from the area, the oil mill was enlarged and upgraded and today it is able to produce oil from 3 tons of olives per hour and provide a solution to producers from all over the country.

Over the years the farm has grown and developed, and was added a small oil mill to manufacture oil from the farm’s vineyards. Then it was decided to brand the oil and the name “Bad VeShemen “ vas given. Later, the name “Jerusalem Olive Oil” was added for the premium Olive oil

In the year of 2016, due to the demand, the oil mill was expanded and upgraded, and today it can produce oil from up to 3 tons of olives per hour, and provide services for manufacturers from all over the country.
During the olive harvest, 3 generations are working together tirelessly-
Grandpa Yossi and grandma Rina;
Their son Moosh and his spouse Hani;
And the grandchildren Yuval, Paz and Hilly.

The oil mill.

About ten years ago, after a long period of experience in growing olives for oil manufacturing, we decided to found an oil mill that would produce oil from the olives of our vineyards.
So, we founded a small oil mill with a capacity of 250 kgs of olives per hour.
Over time, neighboring olive farmers have started to visit our small oil mill and enjoy its services.
The oil mill, “Bad VeShemen”, has produced olive oil for farmers who won awards at contests both in Israel and around the world.
In the year of 2016, due to the demand, the oil mill was expanded and upgraded, and today it can produce oil from up to 3 tons of olives per hour, and provide services for manufacturers from all over the country.
“Bad VeShemen” is an advanced and modern oil mill, it is sterile and meets the highest standards and regulations. The mill is eco-friendly, making use of solar panels for electricity, as well as recycling the oil wastes in two methods: as combustion material, and for controlled scattering in the olive groves and other field crops.

“Bad VeShemen” manufactures olive oil in a unique and advanced process,
which has won the product many awards in olive oil competitions both locally and worldwide.
We work to produce olive oil of the upmost quality for our customers.
Over the years, the owners of the oil mill, Moosh and Hani have acquired extensive knowledge in the field of
growing olive groves and manufacturing local olive oil.
They are professional olive oil tasting course graduates,
certified international olive oil tasters by The Hebrew University of Jerusalem Agriculture Faculty,
in approval of the International Olive Council (IOC).
Both have taken part in many conferences and seminars on the entire field of olive oil, including growing olives,
manufacturing olive oil, and improving the oil quality.

Jerusalem Olive Oil
Our seasoned olive oil

It was the Italians, in fact, who started this trend by throwing lemons into the oil mill’s machines at the end of the season, in order to clean the machines! Later they mixed it with olive oil and sold it as their famous “Lemonolio”. Our fused olive oil is produced in a unique method by adding the additive right at the start of the pressing process, in the stage of grinding the olives.
 The olive paste is mixed together with the additive and go through the whole manufacturing process. By the end of the process we get olive oil with all the benefits, aromas and tastes of the additive, but without the juices. A wonderful, aromatic and pure oil.
