No, it's not a fancy restaurant to impress your date with -- Oasis Date Gardens is actually a date-farming business. On its 175-acre farm, the firm grows and harvests a variety of dates which are sold wholesale to customers throughout the US and internationally, including in Canada, Europe, Australia, and Asia. The company also sells items such as date cakes, bread, confectionery, and butter, and markets gift-packaged date products through an online and mail-order catalog. Oasis Date and sister company Winterhaven Ranch produce more than one million pounds of dates a year. The company was founded in 1912 by Ben and Lucy Laflin, and is currently owned by Chris and Marlene Nielsen and Jim and Judy Freimuth.
