Burt Shavitz’s turkey coop, a 300 SF structure where he lived and started his namesake company, sits on American Tobacco Campus as a reminder of the brand’s values for the office’s 150 employees. ACC dismantled the coop in July 2016 to move it from Maine to North Carolina. It was in NC, a year after Burt died, where his simple wood-shingled home with no electricity or running water was rebuilt with exact precision and now serves as a reminder of the company’s roots in land, community, and nature.
