Kibbutz Shaar Hagolan - founded in 1937, is located to the south of the Jordan Valley - facing the Gilead Mountains and the Golan Heights, just 500m' from the border with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Shaar Hagolan is a thriving, still authentic kibbutz that makes its living by combining modern industry, a variety of advanced agricultural crops and tourism.

Do you know that the very beginning of agriculture was here?!
In the forties, while preparing an area next to the Yarmuk River for fish-ponds, many prehistoric artifacts were found. This led to archeological excavations which exposed a large Neolithic village -8000 years old, from the very beginning of the agricultural era. Even then prehistoric farmers settled on the banks of the Yarmuk, domesticated animals and cultivated various crops such as: wheat, beans, durra, humus, and lentils. They made primeval agricultural tools and pottery. The vessels they produced were used for keeping water and grains and for domestic use in the kitchen. Scores of ceremonial artifacts and fertility figurines that were found, as well as flint and stone tools prove that a unique and rich culture flourished here – known all over the world as the Yarmucian Culture.
