The Alabama Fruit & Vegetable Growers Association is composed of growers who produce fruit, nut and vegetable crops. A wide range of horticultural crops is produced in Alabama.
We seek to address and meet the unique needs of farmers who produce Alabama’s edible horticultural products, including pecans, peaches, strawberries, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, squash, tomatoes, watermelons, blueberries and sweet corn among many others. Fruit, pecan, and vegetable production amounts to around $57 million annually in cash receipts.
Concerns of farmers are represented at the state and national levels through departments of Governmental Affairs and National Affairs. The Department of Public Relations provides horticultural news on this website and member publications.
