American and Family Owned Since 1943

“Money that is made in the USA stays in the USA.”

Since the company was founded in 1943, Jess Smith & Sons Cotton has always been proudly 100% American owned.  While our family owned company operates in all corners of the globe, our Headquarters are in Bakersfield, California, from where we proudly support your local economy and communities.  Our proceeds are recycled back into the US economy, not sent overseas.  Please feel free to check out our Sponsored Charities List in our Members Section to see some of the many USA charities and organizations that we actively support in order to give back to the grower communities.
