Birth of Allred Farms, Our Non-GMO Clothing Company
For the past couple of years, I've tried to market our non-GMO cotton to various companies to no avail...so my partner Jennie Holt and I decided to start our own clothing company. We are taking four bales of cotton to North Carolina to begin the manufacturing process and are extremely excited about this new venture.
One of our motto's is "bare feet, open mind, calloused hands" at Allred Farms. That essentially sums up who we are and what we are about. We start with our own non-GMO cotton seed to help grow the healthiest cotton we can before producing a line of clothing you can be proud to put on your body. Everything is manufactured right here in the USA. We emphasize quality over quantity and fun over finance.
We want to educate the world on what happens during the many stages from planting a cotton seed to making an article of clothing...and have as much fun as possible in the process.
The process will take us several months to get it off the ground. Our website will be www.allredfarms.farm for more information, so that is where we will be posting most subject matters, as well as facebook.com/allredfarms for social media updates. We will start very small and hope to grow it into something wonderful. Music has become a huge part of my life, and we are kicking off our musical debut while in N.C. Jennie and I will be playing live at The Eddy Pub in Saxapahaw, North Carolina, this Friday, January 30th at 7pm. If you are in the area, come on out for a good time. It's a great town with a great feel of what community and the future in America can be.
Allred Farms will be a unique expression of blue-collar consciousness. With rural roots and urban thoughts, we plunge forward into the unknown and embrace the many challenges ahead of us on this unique business venture. We hope you will come along for some of the ride.
