Coming together as a Family! 

“As a Supplier to the watermelon industry the NWA is an essential partner with the industry.  Thru the NWA we are able to connect, build lifetime relationships and give back to the industry.  Without the NWA it would be much more difficult to achieve our company goals within the industry.  The annual NWA convention is the “can’t miss” event of the year!  It never disappoints.” Walt Shappley – Highland Ag Solutions – Mulberry, FL 

Here at NWA we work hard being your partner.  Whether you are a grower, a shipper, or a supplier for watermelons.  Our collaboration with you, and your collaboration with each other can help us all move forward to our end goals.  It is during these times; we are reminded once again how strong our family of members are!  We are blessed to have each one of you a part of our Family.  As we are transitioning back into our offices this week, and getting things ‘back to somewhat normal’, if you have any issues and/or concerns, please let us know.  We are here to serve you!  If you are not receiving regular updates from us or receiving duplicate updates from us  – please reach out to Tami in our membership department at: [email protected] and let her know.  We want to make sure that you – our members – are getting up to date information, and at the same time not being bombarded with duplicate items.  Not yet a member?  You are missing out!  Log onto www.watermelon.ag to join today!

“Everything that the NWA does is very important.  When it comes to issues like labor is when the NWA becomes a rock-star. It’s very important to stay ahead of these problems,  and why the NWA is an extremely important part of our watermelon business model.” 
-Dennis MouzinMouzin Brothers Farms – Vincennes, Indiana

“The NWA is the Strength, Heart, and Soul of the Watermelon Industry.  Through the voluntary effort of networking together, growers, shippers, and associates continue to keep Watermelon at the forefront of the produce industry insuring an on-going infrastructure from Farm to Consumer.”

NWA Expands Social Media Presence to Promote Watermelon Sales

To help kickstart spring sales of watermelon during these strange times, the NWA has begun an aggressive social media project that shares multiple messages about the low price of watermelon and the benefits of them with our friends in various platforms.  Additionally, our National Watermelon Queen (Paige Huntington) will star in some made-at-home How-To videos starring Watermelon.  Stay posted for the fun to begin, and share our posts with all of your friends.  Below is an example of some of the work we have been doing to promote watermelon!
