Growing cotton in the Southern Valleys? 

If you're a local grower, you'll remember the arrival of Southern Cotton back in 2012 and how it made ginning accessible in the region for the first time. Building relationships with growers through honesty and integrity, along with providing good, old-fashioned service, continues to be the cornerstone of Southern Cotton's ongoing appeal.
