Maybe this belongs in the hotel thread, but does anyone know of any place up north that we can go to as a family, and the lodgings are in/or right next  to some sort of farm? We'll be there summer and some of my kids absolutely love farm animals, so I'd like to go someplace I can give them a good farm experience, not just a short visit.
Kiputz Lavi maybe.

I may have something at 180 shekel an hour. $150 would be way too much

Yes. Going rate for full days is 190-220 ILS per hour for a 20-seat Sprinter, though Lag Baomer may cost more, but def not $150/hour. I use a guy who has nice vans, name is Chaim and his # is 0507141050. Ask for a nice van.

Idk about Egged, but for the past few years Hoffman has had busses going from Bar Ilan/Shmuel Hanavi non-stop and you just come and pay, no signup required. Same on the way back. I did it once and found it very efficient and easy. Keep  your eyes open for their signs.
