Casa de Fruta, The Story Behind an Iconic California Fruit Stand

Over 100 years ago, our ancestors from Calabria Italy planted the first orchards in the lush Pacheco Valley with hopes of a new life for their family in America. Since then we have welcomed visitors from around the world to enjoy the bounty of California at our Pacheco Pass location between Monterey and Yosemite.

Today, the fourth generation welcomes your family to enjoy our family business that blossomed from this vision. You may remember Casa de Fruta as the little cherry stand on the Pacheco Pass or as we are today: one of California’s Largest Fruit Stands with a 24 hour Restaurant, Sweet Shop, Wine and Deli, RV Resort, 14 Room Inn, Burrito Bar, 24 hour Chevron Station Food Mart and our Country Park.

Complimentary wine tasting is offered in Casa de Wine and Fruit Stand. There are also playful attractions for the kids including Casa de Choo Choo, Venetian Carousel, Mining Sluice and Playground.

Whether we are a traditional stop on your journey or a weekend getaway with family and friends at our 300 site RV Park, Casa de Fruta offers “Something for Everyone”>
