About Us

The New Hampshire Vegetable and Berry Growers Association (NHVBGA) was founded on the belief that the vast diversification and seasonality of New Hampshire grown produce is something that should be celebrated and enjoyed throughout the entire year. NHVBGA strives to create educational programming for growers and focus on important topics of research, as well as, new technologies and innovations to help the ever changing dynamics of today's working farms. The association consists of over 40 prominent NH producers and with their continued contributions of knowledge and support we hope to continue fostering new innovations and help fund new and practical research projects.

With a rich culture and history of generations past, New Hampshire growers are striving to continue the legacy of land preservation, stewardship, and the belief that the Granite State can play a major role in its own food production. With improved cultural practices and storage capability, we as growers, hope to bring NH consumers noticeably extended seasons of certain crops as well as improved quality of eating. Many growers are even harvesting and storing crops for year-round production so we can all enjoy a little taste of summer throughout the year.
