Barns on Parade

A trio of barns that reside along the back roads in my small town area.  


At this time of year you can still find tobacco drying in a lot of these structures.  


This barn is my favorite.  On occasion an old tractor is parked inside, with a ceiling of tobacco.  



I am linking up with Tom today.  Not only is he a fantastic photographer, but his collection of barns is equally as good. 

 Pay him a visit, won't you?

  6. Michelle thanks for sharing these tobacco barns. I've never seen one before other than in pictures. The smell must be amazing. I hope that you find more to share in the future.

  9. I've loved barns my whole life. I was born in Oklahoma and when we'd go back to visit family we'd always go to grandpa's farm and climb around in his big barn. Thanks for sharing these.. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  10. These barns are beautifully captured. We don't have them here as much in this shape and form, so I always love to sneak a peek here (on Tom's blog as well).

  16. Tobacco? I've never seen that before. What a pretty trio to come upon.

  17. What a great old barn! My husband's relatives used to raise (and dry) tobacco in southern Wisconsin. It was a ton of work. I do love seeing the tobacco leaves drying. Unlike dairy barns which had a bottom story built of stone or block and kept the cows warm in the beastly cold winter, tobacco barns were deliberately built with the boards spaced out for air movement. It's just fascinating. Great photos!

    1. Thank you! Some of the tobacco barns here have boards that open up, (like tiny side doors), for drying purposes.

  21. Hi Michelle, I enjoyed the barn photos. I am curious about tobacco. Wonder if it is still a big crop in the South? I also wonder if tobacco is grown much in other parts of the world. I've only heard of it being grown here in the USA. Have a great week ahead!

    1. John, tobacco is still a cash crop in the south. It is very costly and time consuming to raise, requiring a lot of hands on work. I think it is grown worldwide as tobacco products are even more popular in other countries. Thanks for your visit and have a great Thanksgiving!
