מכון האספסת
מכון האספסת בכפר בלום נבנה בשנת 1950, במטרה לייבש את האספסת, שנקצרה על ידי קומביין, כמזון לפרות. בשלביו הראשונים נקרא המבנה "מכון הייבוש". המכון היה מראשוני מכוני האספסת בארץ.
בשנת 1958, על מנת לייעל את המכון וכדי שתהיה לו הצדקה כלכלית, הקימו בגליל חברה בשם "אספסת הגליל". בחברה היו שותפים הקיבוצים: דן, דפנה, כפר גלעדי, משגב עם, גונן, כפר הנשיא וכפר בלום.
השותפות שינתה את "פני המכון", החלה תעשיית כופתיות וקמח אספסת לבעלי חיים. בשנת 1990, עם הקמת מכוני אספסת נוספים בארץ ועם הקושי להתמודד בתחרות, המכון נסגר.

Alfalfa Institute
The alfalfa institute in Kfar Blum was built in 1950, with the aim of drying the alfalfa, harvested by a combine, as feed for cows. In its early stages, the building was called the "Drying Institute". The institute was one of the first alfalfa institutes in Israel.
In 1958, in order to make the institute more efficient and for it to have economic justification, they established a company in the Galilee called "Alfalfa of the Galilee". The kibbutzim were partners in the company: Dan, Dafna, Kfar Giladi, Mashgav Am, Gonen, Kfar Hanasi and Kfar Blum.
The partnership changed the "face of the institute", started an industry of dumplings and alfalfa flour for animals. In 1990, with the establishment of more alfalfa institutes in Israel and with the difficulty of dealing with the competition, the institute was closed.
