Hadley Fruit Orchards

Hadley Fruit OrchardsI remember years ago cruising down the 10 freeway with my parents and stopping at a little store in the middle of nowhere.   The area has been built up since then (and since it’s establishment in 1931), but Hadley Fruit Orchards pretty much remains the same with their wine tasting room, country store, and date shakes.

When you walk through the doors you feel as if perhaps you’ve been transported to somewhere in the Midwest.  The aisles are filled with barrels of packaged nuts, dried fruits, candies, and food gifts, and souvenirs.  Toward the back, they have fresh breads, natural honeys, and even a sugar -free candy selection with a huge variety of delicious sweets.   The prices are premium, but they do offer some of the best quality dried fruits and nuts available.   If your eyes aren’t convinced to make a purchase, they have samples scattered throughout the store that will help you pull the trigger.  I would have never thought to buy beet chips as a snack, but after a sample, I buy them every time I go back.hadley dates

They have your basic refrigerated cold drinks and snacks for those just quickly passing through. If you have a little more time, make a stop at their little cafe serving up their famous (and very sweet) date shakes and banana date shakes, burgers and dogs.

The wine room is a popular section of the store where customers can also taste some of the stores large selection of fruit wines.

If you can’t make it in person or if you just want to buy some of their California specialty food gifts, you can also order online for delivery.
