Back in Hartford. The Connecticut River valley north of Hartford has been the home of tobacco-growing farms for 150 years. Tobacco is grown under netting in the spring and early summer. After harvesting, it cures in sheds like these. Connecticut Shade Tobacco's broad leaves are used for wrapping premium cigars.
