PostSubject: Tobacco farmers   Thu Jan 15, 2009 12:08 am

I ran a search and didn't find anything on this.
Does anyone know a tobacco farmer?
Or someplace to buy a few pounds of leaf?
I've tried to google this subject and had no luck.
I know McClelland and a few other retailers sell blending tobacco,
but I'm looking for a farm or grower's co-op type of seller.
Maybe a group buy, or almost anything.
I'm thinking it's time to cut the government out of as much of my tax dollars
as possible.

Here is a link that I found when I was searching for the same thing. If you can get through then let us know:

Here is another place you might try:

It seems that Native Americans are the only ones still growing truly pure tobacco, for ceremonial purposes.
If you feel like it you can grow your own, here is a place with seeds and counsel in growing & processing:

Hope something here helps.

You can grow it. I have actually noticed people around here starting to grow it as an ornamental plant. It is a beautiful plant when it is in bloom.

The blooms are gorgeous, but if you grow for leaf break the flowers off - called "topping" the plant.

You might ask these folks for a catalog. Mostly chewing tobacco. But they do sell whole leaf bundles.

Where do you live? You can find plenty of tobacco farmers driving around in some of the rural areas here in NC (though I have no idea how one goes about asking to buy some from the farmer).

Same for Kentucky and Tennessee. Also do a search for "organic tobacco". That should turn up some growers and sources. I recall the fellow that produces C&D's new blend "Organic Pipe Dreams" has a number of sources too. Sorry I can't recall his name though.

Thanks so much, guys.
I've found a couple places thanks to your recomendations.
I live in northern Nevada so no tobacco growers around here.
I used to drive truck cross country and have seen tobacco fields but never
stopped to inquire.
I have plans to really take this up, as well as cigar rolling, when I retire
in just a few years. Going to dip my toe in the water in the meantime.
