Growing Medjool Dates is a labor of love, a test of strength, and a triumph of human spirit. We invite you to meet the special group of farmers who are dedicated to growing Natural Delights, the finest Medjool dates in the world.
Location is Everything
Nestled where California and Arizona meet, Bard Valley lies in a beautiful, sun-drenched corner of America’s Southwest. Our Medjool date gardens are watered by the Lower Colorado River as it makes its way to the Gulf of California. Warmed by the ever present sun, nourished by the high water table and proximity to the Colorado River, this is the home to the finest Medjool dates in the world.
