Thanks guys, and did you all read the NY Times article on Belgian tobacco a couple of weeks ago? I don't know what's going on but they seem to be pro tobacco lately, maybe they are being contrarian and pushing against the city's legislated health laws.
Anyway, I thought this was a great and important record of a very important American tradition.
Thanks for the link, its funny how they don't mention that this is popular in pipe tobacco blends but it got saved by a cigarette company. The big pipe companys must be getting their toby from this farmer?
