Sweet Potatoes

A veritable powerhouse of nutritional goodness, the Center for Science in the Public Interest calls sweet potatoes one of the most nutritious vegetables in the land. In 2011, we planted 130 acres of sweet potatoes.

We offer many packaging options for sweet potatoes. They are sold in 40lb boxes, half bushel or 5 and 10lb. gift boxes. Call us directly to discuss your specific packaging needs.

Varieties include Covington (orange) and Oriental (red). After digging, potatoes go through a two week curing processs to trigger development of the sugar-creating enzymes which gives them the sweet flavor.
