Pato's Dream Date Gardens is a 5-acre farm located in the Coachella Valley of Southern California. We grow our dates as they were grown in the times of the Bible and Koran, without any artificial chemicals or poisons or pesticides or sprays. We do not use any fumigants or sulfur on our soil or our fruit. We sell our fruit direct from the palm to you - no "washing" or steaming or rehydrating them to puff them up; no processing of any kind - a completely natural fruit. We, the Adair and Paniagua families, are both long-time members of the United Farm Workers of America, AFL-CIO. We're proud to be producing this unique food for your health and pleasure.
RAW FOODS/ fruit available without freezing during the August - October harvest season. (Most of our fruit is stored in the freezer after picking). Advise us at the time of your order if you prefer this feature.

I recently ordered the Halawi dates, four pounds. It seems I may even have received more than four pounds, but they arrived neatly packaged, quickly, and with great quality and freshness.... [more]
