Fernandez Dates originated in the scenic and agriculturally rich Coachella Valley, which is located in sunny Southern California. Over 30 years ago, a man named Felipe Fernandez, an immigrant from Mexico, began cultivating and planting date palms at his ranch. As his ranch grew taller, Felipe enlisted the help of his son, Sergio. As time progressed, Felipe taught his son everything that needed to be known on how to successfully grow and harvest delicious dates. A little over ten years ago, the dynamic duo expanded their business by acquiring a second ranch located a couple of miles away. The expansion of the business has been fruitful!
However popular dates may be, many of our customers still ask, “Where do dates come from?.” Well, the date palm is responsible for the delicious fruit that brings joy to our taste buds. The fruit itself is referred to as “nature’s candy” or “the fruit of the desert,” because of its natural sugars and sweetness, as well as its prominent growth in high desert climates.
Each and every date that is harvested from the Fernandez ranches is thoroughly inspected and cleaned before packaging. This process is done with the utmost importance. No chemicals, no insecticides, and no pesticides are used during the process. Therefore, making this wonderful tasty treat very healthy. In fact, dates are high in potassium, iron, and fiber. So not only are you satisfying that sweet tooth, but you are also giving your body a healthy intake of nutrients and vitamins.
Our business has established great rapport with out customers throughout the United States. Customer satisfaction is our number one goal and we do our best to deliver the best product and service to our patrons. We are thankful for our loyal customers who continue to support our business! Our dates are our pride and joy and we hope that we can share this sweet treat with you!
