“MELON MASTERS” – NEW CDFA GROWING CALIFORNIA VIDEO
November 5, 2013
Perry and Sons Featured in Growing California Video Series
The new video on CDFA’s Growing California video series is titled, “Melon Masters”.
Art Perry, CEO, Perry & Sons, Inc. introduces the company, now in its 4th farming generation. The farm, one of California’s largest growers, shippers and handlers of watermelons, has been family owned and operated since 1925.
The video highlights the farm’s harvesting equipment, family farming history, imports, and harvest seasons, among other topics. The farm also grows pumpkins; they harvest healthy, “fun” products that children, and yes adults, like.
To increase production, Perry and Sons has expanded its farming by buying watermelons from local growers and Mexico to supplement the farm to fulfill the increasing demand from customers. This enables the company to supply watermelons 365 days a year to their customers.
