and price list
hours & directions
Ordinarily, this page is where we would list the current mail-order prices for our dates and raisins. However, this has not been an ordinary year.
As you are probably aware we are a third-generation farm growing dates and citrus. We have had the privilege of working together as a family and producing a product that we have been proud of since 1930. We have received many letters and phone calls from you, our cherished customers, complimenting us on our delicious dates and citrus. We are honored and humbled by the fact that most of you have been repeat customers for decades.
Sadly, on June 17, 2020 my mom, Donna Sr. — known as "Big Donna" — passed. Mom had recently turned 90 and had worked up to a few months prior to her passing. She loved what she did and she certainly knew her dates. We mourn her loss and that of my dad — "Big Ted" — who passed in 2013; they were the second generation of our family farm.
With a heavy heart I must wholesale my dates to another packer this year. There are many factors influencing my decision not to open the packing house or continuing to ship dates. I apologize for the inconvenience you may experience in locating another mail-order source for quality dates. I wish I could recommend a grower/packer who could match our quality and price but I honestly can't.
My mom, Donna Fish
From the entire Fish Family, we wish you well.
Until we see you next September 2021,
Ted and Donna Fish
"Young Ted" and "Little Donna"
