Cantaloupe Festival is Right Around the Corner!

Much like these workers on the Vannoy ranch 110 years ago, we’ve got our goods packed and ready to go! The difference is instead of shipping cantaloupes to market, we’re shipping merch and hands-on activities to the cantaloupe festival! Come find us at the fair to make rope, learn about agriculture, or pick up some cool Hearts of Gold Swag!
