Membership

Grower Membership in the CCCGA is voluntary and is based on an assessment of a farmer's crop. Businesses and organizations may join as Sustaining Members, while those individuals who support the ideals of the Association, but who are not active growers or in a related business, may join the CCCGA as Associate Members.

The CCCGA has a professional staff that assists growers in solving everyday problems, offering assistance in regulatory compliance, sponsoring professional development seminars and organizing association activities such as the Harvest Celebration on Columbus Day weekend. Through continued support, CCCGA is working to ensure that cranberry farming can survive urbanization and that open space and clean water, vital to cranberry growing, will be preserved. With your support we will continue to provide the best possible services to our members, better inform our constituents and solidify our position as the state's agricultural leader. We thank you in advance for your consideration in joining our Association. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

Grower Membership

Made possible by the Cape Cod Cranberry Growers' Association. With your continued support, we will continue to promote and support the interests of our Massachusetts' cranberry growers.

Your membership is critical to the CCCGA — 95 percent of our membership dues is generated from growers. The CCCGA continues to seek out alternative sources of funding such as grants and other programs to complement your support.

Past investment in the Association has been instrumental in securing a stronger local economy for the cranberry growers as well as the community. With your support we will continue to provide the best possible services to our members, better inform our constituents and solidify our position as the state's agricultural leader. We thank you in advance for your consideration in joining our Association as a Grower Member. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

Established in 1888 to standardize the measure with which cranberries are sold, the Cape Cod Cranberry Growers’ Association (CCCGA) is one of the country’s oldest farmers’ organizations.  Although a great deal has changed since the CCCGA began, today’s growers still face many challenges.  Today, the CCCGA represents more than 300 growers throughout Massachusetts. This unity has given growers both a single voice and collective strength in promoting the cranberry industry.

The CCCGA has a professional staff that assists growers in solving everyday problems, offering assistance in regulatory compliance, sponsoring professional development seminars and organizing association activities. Through continued support, CCCGA is working to ensure that cranberry farming can survive urbanization and that open space and clean water, vital to cranberry growing, will be preserved.
