We’re excited to exclusively source our delicious Lemon Drop melons from Martori Farms.

As an organic-certified farm using only the most sustainable farming practices, Martori Farms prides themselves on their state-of-the-art technology to bring you the safest and purest produce. In fact, Martori Farms is one of the only two farmers to use a Hot Wash System on their melons: a system that reduces 99.9% of all harmful pathogens and unnecessary environmental bacteria. Martori Farms leads with passion and expertise from years in the industry to bring you melons, unlike anything you’ve ever tasted!
