Connecticut River Valley Tobacco

Tobacco may not be good for, but it sure smells great when it is drying in the barns every fall. Connecticut River Valley tobacco has been used in fine cigars for over a century. The old barns are beautiful and on warm days the friendly scent, almost like a sweet tea, fills the air.

We have three old tobacco barns on our property. They are pretty ubiquitous out here, but we treasure them. The only downside is that, when the previous owners grew tobacco, it depleted the soil. It takes several years to renew it; we can't use the large garden areas for planting yet. But we are patient!
