The Kentucky Vegetable Growers Association was established in 1970 as a non-profit organization to bring together growers, researchers, and individuals across the state who are interested in vegetable production.
Our growers join with members of the Kentucky Vineyard Society and the Kentucky State Horticultural Society to organize the annual Kentucky Fruit and Vegetable Conference and Trade Show, held every January in Lexington, KY. This conference brings growers and researchers together to highlight topics of interest for vegetable growers in the state. Sessions often include talks on organic farming, vegetable production and farmers' markets. Research on new varieties and production techniques is presented as well as grower experiences.
