HISTORY 101: Tobacco began growing in the Americas about 6,000BC. On October 12, 1492 Christopher Columbus was offered tobacco as a gift from the Native Americans, and the rest is history!
Tobacco sticks were used to hang the plant from barn rafters to dry as shown here. The sticks we use were found in Warren County, TN, and have been stored inside since the 1970s by James Wilson. His father Shelton Wilson, and Grandfather Harold Wilson hand carved many of these. A piece of our heritage soon to be gone.
There is no odor, as some may suspect. They are made from extremely hard woods of oak, maple, and hickory.
