Moshav is a type of agricultural community in Israeli consisting of a group of individual farms. Workers produce crops and goods on their properties through individual or pooled labour and resources, and use profit and foodstuffs to provide for themselves. The farmers pay an amount of tax and this money is used to provide agricultural services to the community, like buying supplies and marketing the farm produce.
Today, many moshavim have turned to tourism. Amirim in north of Israel deserves a special mention, as it has become a popular weekend spot for Israelis. All the families who live there are vegetarians and it has developed into a centre for vegetarian and vegan restaurants, guest houses and spas.
