Various Massachusetts Wine growers Associations have been in existence for over 20 years in Mass., however Massachusetts Farm Winery and GrowersAssociation (MFWGA) began its existence in January 2007. MFWGA is a new revitalized group of growers, winemakers and hard cider producers from across the entire state of Mass.
In this short time frame we have:
- Begun an association with a lobbyist on Beacon Hill. This way we have a presence and dialog with legislatures and governmental officials that will foster our industry.
- Begun a website and a traveling show that will promote our industry to the consumer and to new members of our growing industry.
- Continue to work with UMASS Extension in the educational development of our members.
