• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

Greetings everyone,

I joined this forum to learn about Tobacco farming as I'm getting tired of the ever decreasing quality of industrial smokes and the ever rising prices. I also like to make new friends and this forum seems to be very active, full of people knowing what they're doing and united by their passion for tobacco.

So, here I am, hoping I'll fit right in. =P

Welcome there is a lot of great info here. What do you smoke?
I've been smoking Marlboro lights / golds for 2-3 years now, before that I smoked Marboro Reds for 8 years. Looking to get on board with homegrown tobacco. How about yourself?

Prilep is a good tobacco, it's birthplace is actually in Macedonia, a country near mine. I wasn't aware they still grow tobacco in Prilep.

My country is not directly next to Macedonia, it's a little bit more west. I try to avoid typing the name of it myself, as the amount of tobacco I'm growing exceeds the legal limit to fall under "personal use" here.

So are you in Yugoslavia, the Ottoman Empire, or the Holy Roman Empire? (I suppose you could be in all three)
