The Bautista Family Organic Date Ranch

We are a small family farm growing seven varieties of certified organic dates in the Coachella Valley community of Mecca, California, near the Salton Sea.

February 17, 2024In the final days of the growing season last August and September, the Coachella Valley was hit with two major storms that drastically reduced the harvest, causing a very early sell-out. The next crop will be available in September 2024.
