Membership Benefits


Becoming a member

BFVG is a not-for-profit, member based organisation funded by grower and affiliate members and corporate sponsors.

Membership fees enable BFVG to represent grower’s interests on Agri-Political topics at regional levels, to support State & National bodies, as well as provide up to date information to growers through our office and regular newsletters- Fresh Pickings.

In recent years BFVG have branched from the core organisational services to include activities from funded projects and fee for service facilitation.

BFVG is governed by a Board of Directors who are growers or producers of horticultural produce within the Wide Bay Burnett region. To provide diverse representation our Board also includes Independent Directors who provide specialty regional and Industry advice to the Board.

Directors are elected each year by members.

Membership applications are welcomed from Growers and Industry support businesses from within the Wide Bay Burnett region.

Applications for Affiliate Membership are invited from organisations related to horticulture such as suppliers, processors, packagers, wholesalers and companies who work with local and regional growers.

How do we become an Affiliate Member?

Affiliate members are promoted through our Website, Fresh Pickings, Board Meetings, regional meetings, marketing and promotion at events and any other suitable and appropriate avenues.
