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.

When it comes to your food, nature always has the last word. Most pro-organic documentaries make their point by taking stabs at the cruelty and other evils involved in the world of industrialized farming.
