|Founded by||Hebrew Scout movement|
Tlalim was founded in 1980 by a gar'in of Hebrew Scouts, and was named for the large amount of dew (Hebrew: טל, Tal) which falls in the area each year. It was one of the first kibbutzim to be privatised.
As well as the standard agriculture, the kibbutz also has a concrete factory.
