Sugarland Farms

Local Watermelon from Sugarland...

Our Director of Produce, James Channels interviews Larry Jefts, owner of Sugarland Farms, which produces Sugarland seeded and seedless watermelons. Larry talks to us about his families history in farming dating all the way back to the pilgrims. Larry also explains to us the factors that make local fruit often fresher and the impact that buying local can have on the carbon footprint in the environment. Of course he takes the time to share what you want to look for in a good watermelon and lets us sample the taste.
