Home > About Us > Membership
Membership

United Potato Growers of America was formed as a federated farmer cooperative on March 9, 2005. We currently have 10 co-op members.

UPGA was formed by growers to focus on managing the cooperative members' potato supply so as to positively affect grower profitability. Through membership, growers are empowered to better understand and act upon demand for their product.

At this time, affiliated growers are in Alaska, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin.

UPGA was created under the provisions of the Capper-Volstead Act that was enacted in 1922 by the US Congress to allow growers to work collectively to market their products.

Key industry associations

Potato and agriculture industry collaboration and cooperation are critical for success. We work closely with the Potato Marketing Association of North America, United States Potato Board, National Potato Council, United States Department of Agriculture National Agricultural Statistics Service, National Council of Farmer Cooperatives, United Potato Growers of Canada and other organizations, vendors, media and providers to create an effective business environment.

How to join

Membership in a United cooperative is exclusive to potato growers. Potato growers who plant acreage of any size are encouraged to join. The organization is structured on behalf of potato growers who plant fresh and seed acres.
