Please join us in celebrating the nation’s oldest cranberry growers association! We are planning a great evening of fellowship together as we look back over 150 years of history and look forward to an equally bright future. This event is for all current and former growers and our families as well as other members of the NJ cranberry community. Spouses and children are encouraged to attend. There is no charge for attendees.
We are putting together a slide presentation and would like to include everyone’s families and farms. Please send us your pictures! We are looking for photos of current and past generations of growers, photos of life and work on the bogs, and anything else NJ cranberry related. We have set up a dedicated email address where digital copies of pictures can be sent at email@example.com. Please submit by March 1st.
If you need assistance scanning, please write to Stefanie Haines at the same address.
As the nation’s oldest cranberry growers’ association, the ACGA has a long history of supporting the cranberry industry in New Jersey. We continue this legacy in part by gathering growers twice a year to update them on innovations and issues affecting the industry, providing funds and other support to cranberry researchers, and educating the public at various fairs and festivals in the area (particularly the Chatsworth Cranberry Festival, held the third full weekend of each October).
The mission of the ACGA is to preserve and enhance the vitality of the cranberry industry, to provide leadership for the cranberry industry on environmental issues, to encourage and coordinate appropriate research to advance cranberry cultivation, and to identify and resolve issues which are important to cranberry growers. Throughout the year, we engage in educational, social, promotional, and philanthropic activities to achieve these goals.
