Kentucky fire cured tobacco

Asked October 26, 2017, 1:22 PM EDT

Good afternoon. I hope this message finds you well. As a life long Kentucky resident I'm pleased to have this question to as. I work with a Nicaragua based cigar manufacturer. We are currently looking into working with a KY based grower who fire cures their tobacco. My question to you is. Do you know of any growers who utilize this process? If so I would appreciate your assistance in gaining their contact information. Thank you Joshua Pickett 502-594-2443

Joshua,
Thanks for your question. we are always looking for new opportunities for our tobacco growers in KY. I do know quite a few dark fired tobacco growers, however your best bet would be to contact Dr. Andy bailey at our Princeton Research Station as he works more directly with the dark-fire tobacco growers than I do. His contact info is abailey@uky.edu . If you have trouble getting in contact with him or need additional information from me please do not hesitate to contact me back.
