A Gift Inside History: The Fruit of our Labor

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 2013, we opened Farmstead Gourmet, located in the heart of Pennsylvania farm country, expanding our line of delicious handmade cheeses, candies, and sweet and savory accompaniments used throughout our brand's offerings. As our passion for real premium chocolate grew, we purchased a small artisan chocolate company and developed CY Chocolates to handcraft many of our chocolate offerings using real premium chocolates. In 2015, we 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 as "A Gift Inside". Now you can shop for all of our delicious offerings in one website, categorized by brand to make it easy to find the perfect gifts with one easy checkout.
