What you are smoking

More photo's of the Tobacco hanging in the barns and being moved on wagons to the stripping room.

This process has been going on for a few weeks and still they say it will take three more weeks to get all the tobacco stripped and ready for auction.

The five to ten acres raised on their farms thirty years ago has now turned into more than sixty acres today.

Some farmers that have huge operations have fields that are over a hundred acres in one field.

Very hard for me to imagine how much man power it would take to raise that amount
when most of the jobs are still done by hand.
