You matter. Your family matters. Your membership matters.
Virginia Grain Producers Association (VGPA) is a collective membership driven organization. The association’s primary goal is to advocate, promote and enhance opportunities for Virginia grain farmers.
If you are a farmer in Virginia and you grow corn, wheat, barley, rye or oats, the growers association should be important to you. Membership in the association is vital to grow and sustain your farm operation and your role in Virginia agriculture.
Virginia farmers are stronger together, and we need your help as we set the record straight and educate regulators and consumers about Virginia’s corn and small grains industries. Policy makers and consumers alike are more-and-more removed from the farm and oftentimes have little to no knowledge of modern agriculture.
Association members take an active role in advocating for farmers at both the state and federal levels of government. The growers association prides itself on staying ahead of issues that have the potential to impact the way farmers make a living. Policymakers in Richmond and in Washington, DC need to know what issues are important to Virginia grain farmers and their advocates. Legislative leaders know that the growers association, and its members, can be respected and trusted.
