Burley tobacco must be air-cured for four to six weeks in the barn before it's ready for market. Listen.

Burely is a light brown, aromatic tobacco used chiefly in cigarettes. A small percentage is used for pipe and chewing tobacco.

Fall is the tobacco-curing season. However, a little tobacco is left in this barn all year for you to see.
