OFGA Listserv
OFGA staff

Since the beginnings of OFGA as OTFA, we have been maintaining an online group that brings together members and those interested in fruit growing and what we do. This allows participants to send emails to a group email address, and receive responses from everyone else in the group. For example, we have talked recently about winter sunscald prevention, shared event information and news about other relevant associations. We often see photos of insects or diseases, and there is always someone who can help identify and solve the problem.

If you would like to join this free service, contact us for an invitation. Make sure to introduce yourself and let us know why you are interested in joining our group! We are not trying to make this difficult, we are just trying to keep the group free of robot advertisements and unsolicited emails from random marketers.

Once you contact us, the OFGA coordinator will be in touch within a day or two with instructions about what to do next. Sometimes group emails will get delivered to your "spam" folder initially, but we can help you figure out any technical issues as well.


Orchardists, hobby gardeners, customers and those just beginning to explore fruit growing use our online resources to discuss topics related to organic fruit production, marketing, and policy.


Learn from experienced fruit growers and industry professionals, access current research, find and share resources, and network with other members through seminars, workshops, field days and our quarterly newsletter, Just Picked!


OFGA facilitates connections and collaborations with researchers at universities and private companies to address the challenges of managing fruit diseases and pests organically even in humid regions of the US.


OFGA is a professional organization able to represent the interests of member-growers in discussions about the public policies and programs that affect small growers.
