Our tour will be led by Mr. Crane with visits to the farm, museum and barn. There are 2 locations for this tour. We will start at the farm and museum where the Melons are grown (above address) at 11:00 am, then move to the Crane Barn for a tasting.
Bring your own packed lunch and we’ll enjoy an outdoor meal with friends at the on site picnic tables.
The Crane melon averages 4-7 pounds, is round like a soccer ball, and has a light orange flesh that is highly aromatic. The fruit is exceptionally sweet and juicy. As Jennifer Crane – the sixth generation to own and operate the Crane Ranch and grow the Crane melon – explains, “The Crane melon’s flavor is due to its terroir. The melon was developed to be grown on the land that’s been in the Crane family for nearly 160 years – in a particular soil, within a specific climate zone, farmed in a certain style.” Crane Melon Farm
