It’s the oldest regional agricultural association.
It’s all about Central Coast agriculture and the people who make it happen.
Growers, shippers, packers, harvesters, processors - and countless other related businesses – come together as the voice of the Grower-Shipper Association of Central California. More than 325 members span the coastal region encompassing Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Benito and Santa Clara counties. And this diversity is reflected in the produce grown…from vegetables and wine grapes to strawberries and mushrooms, more than 100 different crops flourish in the fertile soil found in this world-renowned coastal agricultural area.
From small, run-by-one farming operations to large, vertically-integrated agribusiness firms, the Grower-Shipper Association represents the best-of-the-best in the industry. The commitment of the Association to meet members’ needs, providing products and services developed to help their businesses continue to thrive, is unwavering.
