Farming starts at the green house, and ends for us when we bring down the Tobacco leaves from the barn. Curing or aging is our expertise and distinguishes us from the rest in the industry; after harvesting the tobacco crop, our tobacco is put through a slow oxidation process and degradation of carotenoids, that will give properly cured tobacco. Its sweetness, burning characteristics and most important its uniform taste, so that we can give you, the cigar smoker, consistent quality and great tasting cigars. The aging process can range from a period of 18-24 months after the harvest process. After our tobacco is cured, the leaves are removed from the tobacco stalks in a process called stripping and sorted into different grades of quality, and use; filler, wrapper & binder.
