HistoryEdit

The village was founded in 1952 by Jewish immigrants from Yemen. Its name is symbolic for its agricultural base and was taken from the Bible by the verse : "He made him ride on the high places of the earth, and he did eat the fruitage of the field; and He made him to suck honey out of the crag, and oil out of the flinty rock" (Deuteronomy 32,13).

A historical ancient site with a mosaic from the Roman-Byzantine era, called "Tel Shevah" is located nearby, as is a landing strip for ultralight aviation.
