Somewhere near the southern portion of Death Valley, in the Mojave Desert, lies an oasis of green, plan trees, and dates. Located near Tecopa, California, China Ranch Date farm is found after a winding, cavernous journey through rock and gravel. A tight squeeze, so leave your rigs behind.
As you exit the dry, rocky roadway, you enter into a beautiful, sun-filled, green oasis. First stop, the gift shop and café…get yourself date shake, try some of the many types of dates they grow there, enjoy a walk through the gift shop.
Then, take a walk through the date farm to see the different types of dates grown. Peaceful and beautiful and educational. Had no idea dates grew on palm-like trees.
