Red Land Cotton was founded in 2016 by Mark Yeager and his daughter Anna, with two primary purposes: to diversify the cotton crop and to create job opportunities in the United States textile industry. Red Land Cotton has done both. Anna’s background in graphic design—combined with her dad’s business acumen—has allowed them to work together to create a brand that’s now loved by thousands of Americans. “We are honored every time we receive an order because it’s an opportunity for us to share a piece of our farm and family with another family,” says Anna. “That’s a responsibility we don’t take lightly, and we are extremely thankful!”
“When we make a decision, it’s not made by a board with suits; it’s made by a family that sits around and eats dinners together. I think that’s a fundamental difference in our company. We are driven by heart and community—not by PowerPoints, financial markets, and investors.”
One special difference is that Red Land Cotton is grown sustainably. What that means is that the family grows cotton with an eye on protecting and preserving the land. They have used innovative practices such as using cover crops after they harvest the cotton to protect the land itself and replenish its natural nutrients. They use beneficial bugs to combat destructive ones and apply organic fertilizer. They do not till the land and never irrigate. In other words, they are keeping the land as natural as possible, even while producing a crop from it.
