Vision

We envision a vibrant community of prosperous, local farms that sustain and benefit the land by providing healthy agricultural products.

History

VOGA was founded in 1992 in the beautiful North Fork Valley of the Gunnison River, Colorado. We support the largest concentration of organic, sustainable growers in the state. VOGA was formed to network growers, educate consumers and promote the benefits of sustainable agriculture that provides fresh, regionally unique products to the consumer.

Our membership has grown to include small and mid-size growers, ranchers, retailers and individuals who support our vision.
