PREMIER DATE GROWER IN THE UNITED STATES
Woodspur Farms not only believes that it is important to grow a beautiful varietal date, but also one rich in flavor. We believe the best way to ensure that our dates reach their full sweetness and flavor is to use organic fertilizers and let the tree ripen the date to the fullest extent possible. This means that all fertilizers are natural, such as using composted chicken litter or cover crops to enhance the nutrients of the soil rather than chemical fertilizers. Also no chemicals or pesticides are used in the gardens.
ANCIENT FRUIT, MODERN METHODS
At Woodspur Farms, meeting the growing demand for healthy organics is our top priority. Organic methods are applied to all of our date varietals and 95% of our products are certified organic by CCOF.
From managing ranches to processing and packing in three facilities, Woodspur Farms is 100% focused on bringing our customers products that are as sustainable and safe as they are healthy and tasty.
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 75% of all Woodspur Farms ranches are on drip irrigation – the most water-saving irrigation method available.
CONSCIENTIOUS CROP MANAGEMENT
We combine ancient wisdom and modern technology to grow outstanding dates. We think 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
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 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 OUR DATES GROW, SO DO WE
Woodspur Farms continues to invest in its future 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.
