J.G. Boswell grows and mills cotton in California's San Joaquin Valley. The secretive company is the country's largest cotton producer. About one-third of its 150,000 California acres are devoted to cotton. It was once said that the company produced enough cotton in one year to produce 840,000 pairs of boxer shorts. Indeed, Boswell's customers include textile makers worldwide. The company also grows tomatoes and a lot of them. One of the nation's largest tomato growers, it produced some 1 million pounds of tomatoes in 2008. Boswell's other smaller crops include wheat, sunflowers, and safflowers. Chairman emeritus James G. Boswell II died in 2009 at the age of 86.
