Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative Updated:04/2021

Texas Organic Cotton Marketing Cooperative (TOCMC) members produce the majority of the organic cotton grown in the United States. Founded in 1993, TOCMC is headquartered in Lubbock, Texas, and most of its members are located in the surrounding South Plains area. 

The cooperative has approximately 40 producer members who plant 18-20,000 acres of organic and transitional cotton each year.  In recent years, total annual production on these family farms has ranged from 11,000 to 17,000 bales. Since many of these farms have limited or no irrigation, yields are very rainfall dependent and vary significantly from year to year.

TOCMC and its members are certified organic under the United States Department of Agriculture National Organic Program (USDA-NOP).  Each bale of cotton marketed by TOCMC is tracked from the field to the customer.  Buyers can know the producer’s name and farm for each bale purchased.

TOCMC members grow other organic crops including peanuts, wheat, corn, blue corn, milo, forage sorghum, soybeans, black-eyed peas, and watermelons.  Also, the cotton seed, which is separated from the cotton fiber in the ginning process, is marketed to organic dairies for feed.
