The West Sussex Growers’ Association is a specialist horticultural branch of the National Farmers’ Union. The membership is made up of those around the West Sussex area who have a strong interest in horticulture. The West Sussex Growers Association exerts a much greater influence on N.F.U. horticultural policy than would be possible in an agriculturally orientated local branch.

West Sussex Growers’ are a significant part of the local economy with a retail value of in excess of 1 billion pounds per year and employing over 7000 full-time equivalent staff.
