"Regulations of the cooperative vine-growers association of the Rishon LeZion and Zichron Ya'akov wineries LTD". Rishon LeZion, [ca. 1910s]. Hebrew.
A list of regulations, typewritten on eight separate pages, regularizing the activity of the "Vine-Growers Association" of Palestine: the aim of the association, planting vineyards, accepting new members, allocating funds, meetings and committees, and other subjects.
"The Vine-Growers Association" ("Agudat HaKormim") was established in 1905 by a group of farmers from the wineries of Baron Edmund de Rothschild. The vine-growers' goal was to take responsibility for the wineries and the trade and after a successful trial period, the Baron was persuaded to give them the authority over the wineries. The association is still active.
