Welcome to the British Independent Fruit Growers' Association (BIFGA) website
BIFGA was formed in 1988, primarily to give independent apple and pear growers a 'voice’.
Our aims are to enable independent apple and pear growers to join together and use their collective strength for the benefit of the individual member and the industry as a whole.
Over the years, we have used our voice to lobby government and others on a very wide range of subjects. We have also used the Association as a forum to bring together growers and allied companies to their mutual benefit.
Please use the links below to access the area of the website most suited to your interests, but please feel free to visit all areas. Updates/additions will be made from time to time - please visit again soon.
This area will be primarily of interest to British commercial growers of apples and pears; also, growers of plums, cherries and soft fruits.
Amateur growers and consumers will find this area of interest. It has information on farm shops, and farmers' markets, and certain apple varieties.
This area has our contact email, relevant links to expedite media enquiries, details about joining, and the Association Rules.
