Folks call us often, asking "where can I get Bogue Sound Watermelon seeds?" Our melons are all sorts of varieties... not "a" variety.
What makes them special and so deliciously sweet and tasty is the sandy soil we grow in, around the White Oak River Basin...
with just the right sunshine and salt air.

WHERE CAN I FIND THESE SPECIAL BOGUE SOUND WATERMELONS?
Along with our member farms, there are roadside stands that sell our melons during the season. Locations are listed here.
Our season runs from about late June into late August/early September.
Since the 2006 growing season, our melons have been available in local grocers, restaurants and military commissaries. If you don't see them in your market, ask your produce manager for
Bogue Sound Watermelons! We do have some folks who
buy wholesale to take to their areas in and around North Carolina, so you might get lucky and find in other places too.
The American Heart Association has recognized watermelon's nutritional properties by giving it the "Healthly Heart" seal of approval. Watermelons contain lycopene that may help reduce the risk of prostate cancer. In fact, watermelons are the leader in lycopene among fresh fruits and vegetables. Watermelon is virtually fat free, nutritionally low in calories and considered an ideal health food.
Great for hydration, it's great for picnics, camping events, socials, special beach trips, and a must for summer vacations!
Be sure to carry some home when visiting us here in the
Crystal Coast area of North Carolina!
