Founded in 1926, Western Growers represents local and regional family farmers growing fresh produce in California, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico. Our members and their workers provide over half the nation's fresh fruits, vegetables and tree nuts, including nearly half of America's fresh organic produce.

Our members grow the best medicine in the world. With so much on their plates, they count on Western Growers for needed services unique to their businesses. We provide advocacy in state and federal government, affordable health benefits, international trade support, transportation solutions, legal and human resources guidance and more.

Western Growers' leadership sets our association apart from the rest. Our executive team has close to 100 years of combined experience, and their direction has helped Western Growers to lead the charge in every facet of specialty crop agriculture.
