Melon Patch Kids is a division of Jerry Anderberg & Associates. The entire Anderberg family started this fresh fruit and vegetable business in 1994. The children, Scott, Rachel, Karen, and Jeff have used this business to learn fundamental business practices and leadership skills. This part of the business began to support Evangelical Christian ministry projects worldwide (Haiti, Bahamas, Belize, Central America and Europe). Of particular interest to the family is the Child Evangelism Fellowship ministry in Jamaica. The Melon Patch has provided several trips in which the family participated personally with the local CEF Staff. Numerous supplies and equipment have also been given from the Melon Patch funds.
Although the Anderberg children are grown, Melon Patch Kids continues to thrive.
The melons and produce are now grown and sold in Billings by Special K Ranch in August and September. They are available at:
