WHAT MAKES ORGANIC DATES ORGANIC?
As the top choice among date farms in California, we are dedicated to growing quality dates with undeniable health benefits. This means offering our buyers organic dates and date products.
So what exactly is “organic”?
“Organic” means we grow our dates naturally. We do not use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Instead, we rely on a combination of ancient wisdom and modern technology to ensure outstanding crop quality.
Our methods include thinning our ranches regularly. This practice gives our organic dates more space to grow, ensuring a larger, sweeter, fleshier fruit without the use of chemical fertilizers. Thinning also allows us to cut back on water usage.
THE BENEFITS OF ORGANIC DATES
So, why choose organic dates? There are countless reasons, but a few of our favorites include:
Choosing organic dates means you keep harmful pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals out of your body.
- Organic farming keeps dangerous substances out of the soil, reducing pollution and protecting the environment.
- Organic dates tend to be fresher than conventionally grown dates.
- Organic dates are GMO-free. This means their DNA has not been altered. We grow real food the way it was meant to be.
Our organic dates offer these advantages in addition to the natural health benefits of the fruit.
THEY’RE NOT JUST DELICIOUS
You can always feel good about snacking on organic dates. This remarkable stone fruit includes some major nutritional benefits. Dates are:
- Cholesterol free
- High in potassium

DEGLET NOOR DATES
Deglet Noor Dates, commonly referred to as “the royal dates” are firm, translucent in color, with a sugary flavor.
These wonderful date varieties have gained worldwide popularity not only as a consumer favorite but for their many uses in the food and beverage industry. Among those are bakers, ingredient producers, breweries, and bar manufacturers. These businesses have all sought Deglet and Medjool date-made ingredients as a healthy alternative sweetener to refined sugars.
Woodspur Farms harvests millions of pounds of Medjool and Deglet Noor every year. The organic dates are carefully graded and inspected by our internal food safety and quality control team. After grading, sorting, and inspecting the dates, our production team packs for consumer markets or processes the fruit into an ingredient: diced dates, date syrup, date sugar, date rolls, and date paste.
HOW ORGANIC DATES GROW
Date palms take 7 to 10 years to produce viable yields for commercial harvest. Mature date palms can produce 150 to 300 pounds of dates each season.
Dates grow in strands. To get the best fruit, we thin out more than half of the young fruit from each strand so the remaining dates can grow large.
When these dates are nearly ripe, we cover the fruit bunches with bags to protect them from weather, birds and insects. When it’s time to harvest the fruits, we untie the bags and collect the strands. Finally, the fruits are washed, separated and packaged or processed.
You can find the sweetest, freshest dates at date farms in California and you’ll find the best of the best right here at Woodspur Farms in the Coachella Valley.
