David Kohl & Greg Willsey

Joolies co-founder David Kohl is the Managing Partner of La Quinta Date Growers, a family owned date farm located in Coachella, California. The family is one of the largest growers of organic Medjool dates in the United States.


The farm was one of the first date producers to become organic. The Kohl operations have always been at the forefront of environmental awareness, global best practices and efficient farming technology by working with international experts to improve all their farming techniques.


These innovations include commissioning the most modern and safest equipment. Working with the equipment manufactures and air quality management district, they customized equipment in order to meet the highest environmental standards while creating a safer workplace for their employees. The farm operates drip irrigation and effective water management systems so every drop of water can be fully utilized.


Kohl Family Farm decided to partner with Greg Willsey and Venice Brands to create a vibrant and playful lifestyle brand worthy of this under-appreciated California Superfruit – the organic Medjool date! David is a passionate surfer. If there is a swell, come meet him in the water.


Joolies co-founder Greg Willsey is the Founder of Venice Brands, a Los-Angeles based consumer brands platform focused on incubating, investing in, and building successful consumer brands across the food, beverage, fitness and pet verticals.
