About Us

Golden Leaf Tobacco has deep roots in the rich Southside Virginia soil where the Bailey family has been growing tobacco on the same land for 5 generations. In 1989, the tobacco operations were expanded to include the current dealer company that allows Golden Leaf Tobacco to provide expertise in contracting, growing, processing and selling green leaf and processed tobacco. The Bailey family also started S&M Brands, Inc. in 1994 to complete the process from seed to final product with the finest cigarette and cigar brands sold domestically and in select international markets.

The comprehensive and in depth knowledge of our family-owned operation establishes us as respected contributors to the tobacco industry throughout the tobacco growing region and beyond, which can be attested by our community, farmers, manufacturers, the local tobacco board, wholesalers, retailers, government officials and industry organizations.

We look forward to serving your needs, please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

Our People

Mac Bailey

Mac Bailey


As a fourth generation tobacco farmer, Mac’s expertise in tobacco begins at its roots. After growing the best tobacco in Southside Virginia, his knowledge and drive led him to also purchase and run a highly successful tobacco warehouse while continuing to expand the tobacco farm. Adding to his depth of experience, Mac then began buying quality tobacco on the tobacco markets in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and North Carolina.

A strong worth ethic instilled in him by his parents has been the driving force in all that he pursues. Mac’s insight into the tobacco industry is second-to-none and while the tobacco industry is constantly evolving, the vision he provides continues to place Golden Leaf Tobacco in the forefront for the future.

Spider Cook

Fredrick (Spider) Cook

Executive Vice President of Leaf

Fredrick (Spider) grew up walking the rows of tobacco bales at auction following his father who was a Ticket Marker. The call of the auctioneer and the smell of the cured golden leaves fascinated him. His years in the tobacco industry have taken Spider to Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Pennsylvania all the while refining his industry knowledge. During this time, he met and impressed Mac Bailey and thus began his 39 year employment with Golden Leaf Tobacco.

Today, Spider serves as Executive Vice President of Leaf and personally oversees the purchasing and processing of all U.S. Flue Cured, Maryland 609 and Burley Tobacco.
