We usually stop here to stock up on dates and snack items and to enjoy a date shake. I like the variety of items they have.

Nice area to sit out and eat your ice cream. Lots of date purchasing options. Staff was uninterested but were not rude and finished their tasks at an adequate speed. The famous Date Shake.... ice cream with dates added. It was ok. But, i am a 400 pound man and I didn't finish mine, if that is any clue.

Decide to see what this tour would be like. I was surprised how intersting dates could be. The tour is about a 1 1/2 long, you are on a guided tour of the farm on how they produce dates and a history of the date. You do not need to walk, you are pulled in a covered trailer. You stop at different locations and the guide well explain a different topic at each stop. Recommended that you call and boom your appointment.
While there I tried the Date shake, which is sweet , put taste, and nothing like a date. They also have a store where you can get Dates, jelly (not date related), hot sauce honey. They also gave sandwiches which are filling and taste pretty good.
The guide was the son's owner and informative.
I recommend seeing this on your visit to Yuma, but take the early tour if you can. It was 91 F (28 C) on the day I went. Even though you are in a shaded trailer, it's still quiet hot.

It's a bit difficult to find, and to be honest we overshot the drive and ended up on a dirt road by the train tracks, trying to turn around our car got stuck in the dirt.
My husband walked back and asked for help finding a garage, the awesome people at Martha's came to save the day, they used their pickup and farm equip and pulled us out. What nice people!
We were able to drive to the correct location and enjoy a date shake on their shaded patio, and get some dates and honey in their store.
