Economics

Cotton farming remains the backbone of not only Brownfield, but the entire South Plains in general. Cotton fields stretch for miles, and the harvest season in October has a frenzy of activity as harvesters (locally called cotton strippers), module makers, and module trucks are seen all over the county.

A significant haze also develops over the city as the local cotton gins go to work stripping the cotton from the burr, separating the seeds, and then compressing the cotton into 500-lb bales. The haze is actually fine cotton dust, and sometimes small drifts develop in the street resembling snow mixed with red dirt.

Peanut growing has found a toehold on the economy as have vineyards. In recent years, grape growing has shown Terry County as a prime producer of choice wine grapes. While no wineries are currently in the county, several notable ones are in the Lubbock area, about 30 miles northeast.

Oil production continues to form a small, but significant, part of the Brownfield economy.
