Purdue Mail Lists
Two mail lists are available through this site to which users can subscribe: The "Fruitveg" list is for all fruit and vegetable growers, farm marketers, etc. in Indiana and surrounding states. The "Winegrape" mail list is primarily for the Indiana wine industry. Anyone can subscribe to either list.
The mail lists have been established to allow Indiana fruit and vegetable growers, wine grape growers and wineries, and farm marketers to interact with each other electronically. We envision growers and marketers using this forum for free and open exchange of information and ideas. We also feel that the list can be used to coordinate group purchases of equipment and supplies, and as a forum to buy and sell produce and used equipment and supplies. However, we believe that advertising by commercial vendors is not appropriate use of the mail group. While we do not intend to moderate the list, we will keep an eye on the activity. We will not allow personal vendettas, inflammatory comments or other inappropriate use of the list. Any statements made do not represent "official" opinions, and Purdue University takes no responsibility for content.
Commercial Fruit and Vegetable - The Fruitveg mail list has been established to allow Indiana fruit and vegetable growers, and farm marketers to interact with each other electronically.
Wine and Grape Production - The Winegrape mail list has been established to allow Indiana grape growers and winemakers to interact with each other electronically.
