האסם ומכון התערובת
בראשית שנות ה-40 הוכנה התערובת לבעלי החיים במכון התערובת, שבנוי מאבני סיליקט. הפועלים ערבבו את התערובת, בעזרת אתים. ביום עבדו בהכנת התערובת, בפיקוחו של מונצ’יק גיסמן, ובלילה היו נוטרים, שומרים על הישוב.
בראשית שנות ה-50 הורחב מכון התערובת ושמואל שפיגל שכלל את המכון וצייד אותו במיטב החידושים. בשנת תשנ"ה 1995 כשנצטמצם מספר רוכשי התערובת וחברים קיבלו מזון מוכן ממכונים מרכזיים, נסגר המכון.
בניין האסם נבנה בשנת תשי"ב 1952 ונועד לאיסום גרעינים לתערובת, כמזון לבעלי החיים בכפר.
מלאכת הבנייה הייתה מבצע הנדסי גדול, והוא נמשך 24 שעות ביממה. כל חברי הכפר וילדיהם חזו בפלא שעלה והתרומם לגובה 30 מטרים. במשך שנים היה האסם מלא גרעינים ואילו עכשיו הוא מזכיר לנו את הימים שעברו.

The barn and the Feed Institute
In the early 1940s, the mixture was prepared for animals at the Feed Institute, which is built of silicate stones. The workers mixed the mixture, using shovels. During the day they worked on the preparation of the mixture, under the supervision of Munchik Gissman, and at night they were guards, guarding the settlement.
In the early 1950s, the Feed institute was expanded and Shmuel Spiegel improved the institute and equipped it with the best innovations. In 1995, when the number of buyers of the mixture was reduced and members received prepared food from major institutes, the institute closed.
The barn building was built in 1952 and was intended to store grains for the mixture, as food for the animals in the village.
The craft of construction was a major engineering operation, and it lasted 24 hours a day. All the members of the village and their children witnessed a miracle that rose and rose to a height of 30 meters. For years the barn was full of kernels while now it reminds us of days gone by.
