President and CEO

This is our story. It is the story of how family farmers give us fresh fruits, vegetables and nuts. As Americans who rely on these healthy foods, this is a story everyone should care about. At Western Growers, we represent the family farmers based in California and Arizona who grow and distribute that healthy fresh produce. Our members provide half the nation’s fresh fruits, vegetables and tree nuts including locally grown produce and a third of America’s fresh organic produce. Some also farm throughout the U.S. and in other countries so people have year-round access to nutritious food. To know our story is to know where your healthy food comes from.

At Western Growers we have a saying that describes our family farmers: We grow the best medicine in the world.™
