At Woodspur Farms, meeting the growing demand for healthy organics is our top priority.
• Organic methods applied to all of our date varietals
• 100% of our products are certified organic by CCOF
ANCIENT FRUIT, MODERN METHODS
From managing ranches to processing and packing in two facilities, Woodspur Farms is focused on bringing our customers products that are as sustainable and safe as they are healthy and tasty.
CONSCIENTIOUS CROP MANAGEMENT
We combine ancient wisdom and modern technology to grow outstanding dates. We thin our ranches regularly, because more space between trees means more sunlight and more efficient water usage. The results are stunning:
• Larger, fleshier and sweeter fruit
• Abundant crops each and every year
• Reduced need for water and fertilizer
SEASONAL DATE VARIETIES
Woodspur Farms offers 16 varieties of whole dates throughout the year depending on the season, both organically and conventionally grown.
• Deglet Noor
• Golden Zahidi
• Black Abbada
• Black Beauty
• Black Khaisab
• Black McGill
WATER BY THE DROP
Here in the Southwest, water is a precious resource and Woodspur Farms aims to set the industry standard for sustainable irrigation. Luckily, date palms are well adapted to the desert climate and don’t mind getting their water by the drop. That’s why most of Woodspur Farms ranches are on drip irrigation – the most water-saving irrigation method available.
PACKING AND PROCESSING
Woodspur Farms has three main facilities for packing and processing date products. We continually upgrade our technology and processes, investing in new equipment and looking for opportunities to innovate. Our 200+ employees are thoroughly committed to quality, safety and customer service. Our facilities are strategically located to ensure that dates get from our trees to markets worldwide as quickly as possible. As a result, we can guarantee that the millions of pounds of dates we sell each year are the best around.
AS OUR DATES GROW, SO DO WE
Woodspur Farms aims to double – or even triple – its production of conventional and organic dates within the next few years. Through successful organic farming methods, technological innovations and stewardship of the land, we strive to lead the field in performance, innovation, food safety and sustainability.
