Although it seems like those seeds and tiny plants just went into the ground, harvest season is almost upon us. It’s amazing how quickly the fields change from one week to the next in Colorado’s wild weather.

Your family farm members of the Rocky Ford Growers Association work together to make sure you can enjoy those sweet, delicious Rocky Ford Cantaloupe, Watermelon, and Honeydew melons throughout the harvest season, hopefully from mid-July through mid-September. We work to carefully manage our land and water, and to deliver a safe and delicious Colorado favorite. Thank you for supporting local, Colorado family farms with your purchase of every Rocky Ford Growers Association Cantaloupe, Watermelon, and Honeydew melon. Enjoy!
