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 rabbis 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 populations 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.
