The New York State Vegetable Growers Association, Inc. is one of the oldest agricultural organizations in New York State. Founded in 1911, the association is a not-for-profit corporation that serves commercial fresh market, storage and processing vegetable growers. It is guided by a fifteen member Board of Directors who represent the major commodities produced throughout New York State.
This organization provides educational opportunities and resources for our members regarding production, management and marketing; increases public awareness of the importance and value of the New York State produce industry; and promotes New York producers and their product at local, regional and national levels. Related research that is done through Cornell University and Cornell Cooperative Extension is supported by this organization as well. In addition, this association works with other agricultural organizations and government officials to promote the vegetable industry.
