About Florida Sun Grown Tobacco Farm
Founded in 2012, Florida Sun Grown is the first farm in Florida to grow long filler cigar tobacco in many years; a tradition that ended in 1977 as many tobacco farms closed shop and relocated to other regions. Located in beautiful Clermont Florida, Florida Sun Grown is the latest enterprise of president and founder of Corona Cigar Company Jeff Borysiewicz. The farm is dedicated to growing premium tobacco that will be utilized in the production of fine cigars worldwide. The first test crop was planted in March 2013 and yielded roughly 800 pounds of Criollo and Corojo tobacco. FSG has since increased production and is well on its way to reestablishing a culture of premium tobacco farming in Florida.
