For more than 50 years we've grown and packed our own pears and cherries in the fertile lands along the River Deltas of Northern California's Sacramento Valley, perfecting our fruit and taking pride in our harvests. We created Golden State Fruit in 2009 to bring the best of our handpicked fruit of our orchards direct to doorsteps. And thus began our delicious journey into the gourmet-gifting world. In time, we added Farmstead Gourmet, located in the heart of Pennsylvania farm country, to expand our line of delicious handmade cheeses, candies, and sweet and savory accompaniments. More recently, CY Chocolates, a small artisan confections company joined our family of brands, handcrafting many of our chocolate offerings using real premium chocolates. Now we have combined the collective vision and experience of each of these gourmet brands together to bring an incredible variety and improved gourmet gift-shopping experience to you.
