בניין המחלבה
בשנת 1936 נבנה בניין המחלבה המקורי ששימש להכנת החלב לשיווק. כדי לקבל אישור לשיווק החלב לאוכלוסייה היהודית בפתח תקוה, חי במושבה רב יהודי יחד עם בני משפחתו.
עם פרוץ מלחמת העולם השנייה עזבה משפחת הרב ושיווק החלב הניגר נפסק. המחלבה הוסבה למחלבה לייצור גבינות קשות. הגבינות שווקו לצבא הגרמני והיו חלק מהתרומה של האוכלוסייה המקומית למאמץ המלחמתי.
בניין המחלבה נבנה בסגנון בינלאומי, בטכנולוגיית בנייה מסיבית, כולו יצוק בטון. החיפוי המקורי (השפריץ הדק המיוחד) ידוע בכינוי "קראנצפוץ". המבנה הסמוך שימש כחדר הגנרטורים ונשמר ללא שינוי.
כיום משמש המבנה למזכירות מושב בני עטרות. בחזיתו ממוקם חדר הנצחה לזכר חללי המושב במלחמות ישראל.

The dairy building
In 1936 the original dairy building was used to prepare the milk for marketing. In order to obtain a permit to market the milk to the Jewish population in Petah Tikva, a Jewish rabbi lived in the colony with his family.
With the outbreak of World War II the rabbi’s family left and the marketing of liquid milk stopped. The dairy was converted into a dairy for the production of hard cheeses. The cheeses were marketed to the German army and were part of the local population’s contribution to the war effort.
The dairy building was built in an international style, with massive construction technology, all cast concrete. The original cladding (the special thin splash) is known as a "cranztpot". The adjoining building served as the generator room and was kept unchanged.
Today, the building serves as the Bnei Atarot secretariat. In front of it is a memorial room in memory of the victims of the moshav during the Israeli wars.
