Cow farm: The ADS cow farm was started in the early 1960s from a herd of 26 cows and has grown over the years to a current herd of 374 cows. All the cows milk is used to produce milk, cheese and yoghurts in the project’s production centre.
Dairy production: A dairy production unit has been part of the project since the first cows were introduced to the ADS. The original plant was installed with the assistance of experts sent by Brigham Young University and has been regularly upgraded into the facility operating today. The facility uses 100% of the milk from the cow farm and produces highly respected and desired dairy products sold in the West Bank.
Fish farm: The fish farm project was started as a partnership between the ADS and the Palestinian Ministry of Agriculture through funding from the Danish, Brazilian and Argentinian governments. The farm currently is set up to hatch, grow and harvest tilapia for sale in the Palestinian market. The farm’s facilities were later expanded from hatcheries to sell directly to the Palestinian market and have now started supplying restaurants and other customers with fish grown in the ADS
