History
  • In March of 2005, after attending a family
    members funeral, our search began for organic
    tobacco seed.
  • The discovery was made that Certified Organic
    seeds were unavailable, but a group of
    forward-thinking Canadian farmers were
    coincidentally looking to distribute their
    Certified Organic Tobacco product.

Benefits of organic farming
  • There are also tremendous environmental benefits
    to producing and using certified organic tobacco.
  • Pesticide/chemical-free farming
  • reduces green house gas production
  • increases soil productivity
  • reduces direct exposure of farmers to toxic
    chemicals
  • reduces toxic waste that flows in streams and
    rivers
  • increases the natural presence of beneficials
  • moisture that is reabsorbed into the atmosphere
    is cleaner
