Beacon Farms and Cayman Tobacco
The Beacon is the result of years of research and preparation by the folks at Beacon Farms. It is the namesake of our Beacon cigar. In North Side, Grand Cayman, Beacon Farms was established in 2016. It is a nonprofit agricultural venture to support Caymanians in overcoming the challenges of sustained addiction recovery. To accomplish this, Beacon Farms provides farming education programs and a positive environment for these individuals. It is to help build a better tomorrow for themselves and the greater Caymanian community.
Beacon Farms is making a positive impact on Caymanians. This is done by applying the latest farming techniques to experimental crops such as tobacco. Moreover, also for cigar lovers around the world. The tobacco grown, cured, and fermented at Beacon Farms is developed especially for Cayman cigars and is the first step in our goal to make the Cayman Islands one of the world’s top tobacco-growing regions.
What’s Special About Tobacco Grown in the Cayman Islands
The Cayman tobacco used for Beacon cigars is the result of years of research and preparation by the Beacon Farms team. Experimenting with various tobacco types from Criollo 98 to Connecticut Broadleaf, the team utilizes a research garden to develop the methods and procedures best suited for growing top-shelf tobacco in the unique Cayman climate and soil.
As cultivating techniques are perfected, tobaccos are planted in larger fields. Once harvested, the tobacco leaves are hung in curing barns before going through a rigid fermentation process and aging period. Through extensive experimentation and utilizing the best, most sustainable farming practices, the Beacon Farms team has overcome the many challenges presented by growing tobacco in the Cayman Islands and create rich, flavorful Cayman tobacco ideally suited for the world’s finest cigars. As a result, we are honored that The Beacon is the first premium cigar ever to use tobacco grown in the Cayman Islands.
