Melon Patch Farms

Shelltown, MD

Melon Patch Farms is a family owned farming enterprise located near the small village of Shelltown in Somerset County, Maryland and are the recipient of the 2007 Conservation Farm of the Year Award for Somerset County in the state of Maryland. We have been in business at this location since 1969 and sell produce both wholesale and retail at the farm. We produce cantaloupes, vine ripened tomatoes, grape tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes and red and green peppers. We begin harvesting in early July and continue through September.
