Growing tobacco on a farm was a very hard life, but in eastern Kentucky at times it was just about the only source of money for most poor families. Raising tobacco was nearly a year long process. In the spring the tobacco seeds were sown in the tobacco beds. Later, the young plants were transplanted to the fresh plowed fields. After a full summer of work the tobacco was cut and hung in the barn using "Tobacco Sticks" to cure. Later, in winter the tobacco leaves were removed from the tobacco stalk and taken to market for sale.

The Tobacco Walking Stick or walking canes shown below were made over 100 years ago by splitting logs of Ask, Oak, or Hickory into smaller and smaller sticks. The Tobacco Walking Sticks are about 42" tall, with four flat sides. Owning a Kentucky Tobacco Stick is like owning a little bit of history
