Share

Get ready to set on a voyage into the authentic rural life of Karaki Farmers, where time-honoured traditions come alive in the countryside's beautiful landscapes. Allow yourself to experience the daily rhythms of a farming family, participating in old practices that have been passed down through generations. Engage in the process of baking Arboud bread, a centuries-old technique that transforms whole wheat grain organic flour into a delectable lump of dough, cooked directly on burning coal covered with ashes. This ancient method provides a window into the rich heritage of Karaki Farmers.

Interact playfully with baby sheep, join in on olive picking during the season, and witness the art of Saj baking. Enjoy a local organic Karaki breakfast, featuring olive oil extracted from olives harvested right from the family's groves. While appreciating your breakfast, look over to the breathtaking Mujeb Valley from the Karak side. Explore a nearby abandoned village and ruins dating back to the Byzantine and Ottoman eras until 1930.

Join Abu Ashraf’s family, where the aroma of freshly baked bread intertwines with tales of generations past, creating an unforgettable connection to the roots of Karaki Farmers’ rural life.
