Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative
One of our first partners in growing organic cotton in the mid 90s, the Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative (TOCMC) is still farming strong out on the high plains of Texas. West Texas is prime land for growing cotton organically, because of low insect pressure, a timely freeze to defoliate the cotton without the use of chemical agents, and enough rainfall to dryland farm a healthy amount of the cotton.
ORGANIC COTTON – GROWN IN THE USA
Founding members of the Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative remember what it was like to take the risk to go organic almost two decades ago, while newer members look ahead at the future of organic cotton.
