The community of Amana raised its own tobacco and made its own cigars. The Colonists were good gardeners and farmers , after all. The wooden molds were laden with the homemade, rolled cigars, then pressed on top of each other in a cigar mold press. When dried and ready, they were released from the molds and presses to be enjoyed (while there was support of the "vile weed") in the communal era before 1932, unlike the groups of the Zoar or Rappites.
