The Galician Rural Federation (FRUGA, Federación Rural Galega in Galician language) is a Galician farmers and breeders union centered on family farms and small peasants. The organization has its origins in a split of the Sindicato Labrego Galego-Comisións Labregas (SLG) in 2009. The splitters, that later founded FRUGA, wanted the SLG to take a closer political line to the Galician Nationalist Bloc and the Galician People's Union.[2][3] FRUGA is particularly strong among milk cows small farmers.[4]
