Generations of Quality Farmers

October 26, 2020

As you know, our cigar story has been around for over 100 years. During all that time, we have been loyal to the resources and the people that are a part of our story to maintain our high quality. This would not be possible without our farmers! Most of our farmers have been perfecting their craft for decades, and some have even been a part of our farm family for multiple generations.

Avanti cigars are made using only USA-grown Kentucky or Tennessee tobacco. After our farmers harvest the best parts of the tobacco plant, they begin the art of dark fire curing. During this process, the tobacco becomes dark and oily and the aromas become smokey, which builds on the full body of the cigar.

See some of our farmers’ stories below and learn why our cigars have some of the finest dark fire-cured tobacco in the country! Or hear their stories firsthand here in our documentary series.
