About Watermelon Army

From the Battlefield to the Farm – Picked with care, brewed with love, served with pride: This is Watermelon Army

In a world flooded with ordinary flavors and factory-made fare, enter the ranks of the Watermelon Army! Embark on a flavor mission, serving up coffee that commands attention, honey that's salute-worthy, and watermelons that'll have you rallying for more.

The History & Our Founding

The Whiskey Rebellion of 1794 presented a challenge to the peace and continuity of the United States. President Washington responded by assembling a militia of 13,000 Countrymen from PA, NJ, MD and VA to quell the rebellion. This force was given the moniker "The Watermelon Army" by the Whiskey Rebels. The Watermelon Army was successful in its task to quell the rebellion by its size and absolute love and respect for President Washington without confrontation.

226 years later in May of 2020, amongst much discontent across the United States, two U.S. Army veterans created an army whose goal is to quell the discontent through the enjoyment of sweet watermelon across the land.

With a spirit of togetherness out of love and respect for our countrymen, we bring you the sweet stuff of the Watermelon Army.
