Vinales, in the province of Pinar del Rio, is an agricultural based economy. With the low mountain ranges of Sierra del Rosario and Sierra Los Organos towering the plantation with the Mogotes remnants of the Jurassic period the high green trees act as fruits act as windbreak to protect the seedlings budding after the rain. In the lush valley of Vinales, the soil made of varieties of red is fertile. On the flat surfaced land, blessed by the gods, tobacco, sugar, coffee, yucca (cassava), vegetables, fruits and even paddy fields are grown. Using traditional techniques like ox ploughing, farmers activate themselves all the year round to reap the fruits of their work. Ecological as well as agro ecological agriculture is practiced in Vinales to reap a better yield. Organic or semi organic, crop rotation which enrich the soil, green manure and bio pesticides together with the knowledge passed on through generation of farmers make the agriculture a flourishing business in this part of rural Cuba. This is the place where the main crop is tobacco and the ‘bohios near the fields. Many of the brand name cigars come from Vinales.
