NC Organic Cotton Tour

While all of the products offered by TS Designs are not 100% organic, they are working with organic cotton growers in NC to offer more locally grown organic cotton products which is a good thing as conventionally grown cotton can use a lot of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. The tour described below is focused on their organic cotton fields.

Invite your friends and family to spend the day with TS Designs and explore where their Cotton of the Carolinas t-shirt begins! You can also meet farmer, Ronnie Burleson, along with everyone who makes this special t-shirt a reality.  Price – $12/person – includes local lunch.

Location:  Rolling Hills Gin, 29107 Kendalls Church Rd, New London, North Carolina
Phone:  (704) 984-6800
