History

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Begun a website and a traveling show that will promote our industry to the consumer and to new members of our growing industry.
  3. Continue to work with UMASS Extension in the educational development of our members.
