Our Story

S&M Brands is one of the great American success stories. There's only one country on earth where a family can set out to create a superior product, introduce it to a market dominated by big corporations, and make good on a generations-old dream. The entire process "from seed to cigarette" is proudly made in the U.S.A.


It all began in the 1860's when the Bailey family gained its reputation of growing some of the finest tobacco on the Bailey family farm, a reputation that still holds true today.

This family operation is one of the largest in Virginia, growing sought-after tobacco that is shipped around the world.

What was planted and took root over 125 years ago in the rich Virginia soil has cultivated masters of growing fine tobacco and led to S&M Brands premium tobacco products today.
