"Cooperation, Not Competition"
We are the official Kentucky Blueberry Growers Association located in south
central Kentucky. We are a cooperative for local farmers.
The Kentucky Blueberry Growers Association, Inc. (KBGA) is your information and contact source for fresh handpicked blueberries and U-pick farms in and around Kentucky thanks to our extensive membership. Beginning in 2008, the KBGA supplies packaging and labels for blueberry growers. KBGA has association-specific packaging for its members and generic packaging for non members.
Today the KBGA is a full service speciality Blueberry Nursery offering a wide
variety of plants and products available to the blueberry growers and the public. The KBGA offers wholesale
prices for farmers interested in growing blueberries commercially.
The KBGA is a for-profit company that was formed in 2002 by Mr. and Mrs. Larry Martin Sr. to create an organized base for Blueberry growers
in Kentucky. The KBGA is used for informational purposes associated with growing and marketing of blueberries. It is also a place where people can ask questions, share information, resources and share experiences. Although the KBGA was originally formed with the idea of helping Kentucky based growers it seems the association is doing such a good job that members are joining from all over. Our motto of "Cooperation Not Competition" is well deserved and it shows.
sends E-mail updates to members, holds meetings, encourages ideas and suggestions, provides equipment for member use, promotes blueberries through such things as the annual Blueberry Festival held in Edmonton (Metcalfe county), Kentucky, and has a goal of being able to offer blueberry growers the supplies and equipment they need at a reduced cost. Members of the KBGA are offered
the opportunities to learn from and work with fellow growers. The KBGA is pleased to be a part of this fast growing agricultural opportunity and will do all it can to develop markets and to promote the blueberry industry in Kentucky and surrounding states.
Member E-mail updates are used to help our members with commonly known
problems or answer common questions. We use E-mail as a means of offering our products to the growers as well as passing on valuable information on common issues, facts, and other blueberry related news and ideas. It is the intention of the KBGA to have this remain a low cost service to the supporting members of the association.
The KBGA's current headquarters is in Metcalfe County, Kentucky. It is the KBGA's goal to help with the organization of blueberry growers by helping them with valuable information on grants, markets, and supplies. The KBGA also prides itself as being one of the most knowledgeable sources of help and resources in the blueberry industry.
The members of the KBGA are the backbone of the association; The success of this organization is linked directly to the members through their willingness to share and help -- and all their hard work. It is not easy to keep and grow such a successful association. The members are good people who work hard to make this association the best it can be and you will never meet a nicer group of people.
