Sde Warburg (Hebrew: שְׂדֵה וַרְבּוּרְג‎) is a moshav shitufi in central Israel. Located to the north of Kfar Saba, it falls under the jurisdiction of Drom HaSharon Regional Council. In 2015 it had a population of 1,483.

History[edit]

The moshav was established in 1938 as a Tower and Stockade by immigrants from Germany and was named after Botanist and Zionist leader Otto Warburg.

World record[edit]

Greatest lettuce salad in the world.

Sde Warburg held the Guinness World Record for the largest lettuce salad, weighing 10,260 kg. The event, held on 10 November 2007, was part of the 70th anniversary celebration of the founding of the moshav. The salad was sold to participants and onlookers alike for 10 NIS per bowl, raising 100,000 NIS (over $25,000) to benefit Aleh Negev, a rehabilitative village for young adults suffering from severe physical and cognitive disabilities.[2]
