Like all experienced shepherds, he knows every nook and cranny between Kherbet Qanafar and Aitanit. A walk with Aammo Boutros is simply a delight: he has endless stories to share about his goats; their names, what they graze on and the best way to tend for them.

A young man from Aitanit, Phillippe Risha holds his olive orchards, inherited from his family, dear to his heart. In November and December, he welcomes visitors in his land to participate and learn about olive harvesting and accompanies them to visit the nearby olive mill in Aitanit and watch both old and new techniques of olive oil extraction.
