Ever since we planted our first orchards in 1908, we've been growing. New orchards, new varieties, new stores, new family members, new catalogs, and of course, new Web pages. At our roadside location in the fertile Pacheco Valley between Monterey and Yosemite, we've welcomed visitors from around the world.
We hope you'll try some of our new additions as well as your favorites.
If you are new to Casa de Fruta, welcome to the family. To those who know us, thank you for your patronage.
Casa de Fruta is a true American success story that blossomed from the roots of an immigrant Italian family. Since 1908 when the original ancestors planted the first orchards in the Pacheco Valley, Casa de Fruta has grown into a diversified operation encompassing a variety of business ventures. In the 1940's three teenaged brothers, George, Joseph and Eugene Zanger, opened a cherry stand on the Pacheco Pass Highway. Encouraged by their mother, Clara Bisceglia Zanger, the young entrepreneurs expanded their operation into what it is today. The families of Joseph and Eugene now operate one of the country's most unique businesses.
