Farming has been a way of life in the Leja/Haskell households for over 65 years. With the love of farming in their hearts and a background in cotton, hay, barley, and wheat, Pat and Glenda (Haskell) Leja moved their young family north to the Coachella Valley from El Centro in 1960. They purchased a small home amidst 20 acres and shortly thereafter planted their first date offshoots. The acreage and fruit production of Leja Farms has since increased many times over but the superb quality remains the same. Pat and Glenda continue to live on the "home ranch" enjoying the benefits of living amongst the Palms, certainly the "fruit" of their labor. Their son Greg manages the day-to-day farming operation while preserving the family's commitment to producing only the finest quality dates.
