Farm to Market Cotton explores the journey this popular fiber takes from the time it is a small green plant, through harvest, ginning, spinning, weaving and sewing. It is a unique opportunity for viewers to see the transformation from field crop to clothing.
This is part of Phoenix Films’ 15-part Farm to Market series, which follows the journey of a particular agricultural product as it is grown, harvested, processed, and then transported to its final destination at the market. Through the videos, students are taken “behind the scenes” of production and manufacturing, visiting farms, ranches and orchards, as well as mills and factories.
