Just over the ridge line that trails our creekside factory, you’ll find beautiful fields of the world’s finest organic Virginia Flue Cured tobacco. Locals say a vein of ultra-rich soil in our district creates the perfect growing environment for flue cured tobacco – it’s something no other region can offer! Our Organic Virginia Flue Cured Lemon Leaf (BL) comes from these very fields. Our supply of this leaf has a striking lemon coloring, medium body and firm leaf structure. The (BL) notation designates that this leaf is generally pulled from above the mid-section of the stalk, although it may share some characteristics of lemon cutters.
