Cover of Black Flora book

Cotten profile in Black Flora

Look who is featured in the new book Black Flora: Chatham County growers Taij Victoria Cotten! Author Teresa J. Speight profiles 22 black flower farmers, florists, artists, and entrepreneurs across the U.S. and we are so proud to have the Cottens representing North Carolina.

I remember meeting Taij and Victoria for the first time years ago when they visited me in my office to discuss their farming goals. They eventually landed at Perry-winkle Farm where they developed a beautiful partnership with Cathy Jones and Mike Perry, who they consider their farm-ily. I love that they are benefitting from Cathy and Mike’s 30+ years of farming experience, and Cathy and Mike are benefitting from their ideas and perspective.
