The Vermont Tree Fruit Growers Association

VTFGA is Vermont’s oldest agricultural trade organization. It was formed in 1896 as the Vermont State Horticultural Society.

Recognized by Vermont’s Secretary of State as a Domestic Non-profit Corporation, VTFGA is organized to plan, develop, implement, deliver and coordinate programs and services which promote the growth and production of tree fruits and to better the conditions of fruit growers in Vermont.  Our by-laws can be found at VTFGA bylaws
