The demands of farming specialty crops in California coupled with constant and changing demands from the marketplace have made our jobs of growing and selling fresh table grapes ever more challenging. Add the constraints of increasing regulatory issues, food safety, and relentless politics and our job truly becomes challenging. We rely on Western Growers as a partner in fending our position in the industry.

Being a member of Western Growers has saved me thousands of dollars over the years.”

...Western Growers is the strongest voice western agriculture has…Especially in the last 10 years, the leadership at Western Growers has performed at the highest level…My brother and I are very appreciative of everything Western Growers does.

We can’t do this alone. I rely on Western Growers to represent us on costly regulatory matters that affect our business – they have proven to be a consistent and powerful front for our industry.”

Western Growers allows each farmer in California and Arizona one voice when tackling issues that affect all farmers and the future of agriculture. This is extremely important for each grower to be able to work collaboratively to achieve one goal to sustain farming in California and Arizona.

Western Growers offers many great services…but the major reason we belong to the association is because of the representation. Western Growers represents our interests and they are one of the strongest voices for agriculture that there is.

I am a firm believer of organizations such as Western Growers, which can get things done that we cannot get done for ourselves.”

I would be lost in this industry without [Western Growers]. I receive phenomenal advice in many areas including the technical aspects of buying and selling fresh produce…it’s like having an expert in your own backyard.

Western Growers is in my corner, working for me and fighting the good fight for our industry. We remain loyal members because they have consistently shown us value.

Membership Guide

Join

Established in 1926, Western Growers has represented family farmers growing fresh produce in Arizona and California for 88 years. While many of the membership are located in California and Arizona, we have members in over 20 states and we have begun to look at building relationships in other states and therefore collaborate on issues affecting all of us at the federal level.

Networking

When you become a member of the Western Growers family, you are instantly connected to a vast network of industry leaders who supply almost half of the nation’s fresh fruit, vegetables and tree nuts. Western Growers members represent the bulk of the specialty crop industry. Each year, members gather together for our Annual Meeting to network, learn and share experiences, insights and the latest developments in our field.

We Fight For You

We aggressively advocate and lobby on your behalf at both state and federal levels. Our political relationships allow us to represent your interests in the halls of government and limit burdensome government regulations on the agriculture industry. We never stop working to make sure you have what you need to produce the healthy food that feeds the world.
