Harvest 2012 report
Every year Zaytoun works with IWPS and volunteers in the UK to send out a team of olive pickers. Please check our harvest page for more information about how they help farmers who pick olives in the face of intimidation and even violence from settlers and the army. We’ve just received this 2012 Harvest Report with the latest update from the villages visited by the team in 2012, please do read and circulate.
Wadi Qana update
For the past three years we’ve been proud to host Riziq abu Nasser, a farmer from Deir Istya who has trees in the beautiful valley known as Wadi Qana. We’ve been following the heartbreaking story of the destruction of Wadi Qana trees and pollution of its water.Click on WQ Case Study for an update written by Fran, a volunteer with International Women’s Peace Service. IWPS has a base in Deir Istya so is closely involved with this little farming community beset by a ring of illegal Israeli settlements.

Palestine Resources Pack
We were moved to launch Zaytoun in 2004, having spent time with farming communities in Palestine and witnessing the extreme difficulty many such communities had in accessing their olive groves, and in moving themselves and their beautiful produce around due to the conditions imposed by the Israeli occupation. Our mission is not only to sell Palestinian products, but also to highlight the severe economic and social disadvantages faced by Palestinian farmers and their families in exercising their right to a sustainable livelihood. Sadly this remains a priority for us, as conditions have if anything worsened for these farmers. The resources listed below will tell you and your own community more about their story.
