Description

This group supports once-tobacco farmers to grow sweet potatoes, including the Stokes Purple potato-- which does not lose its vibrant purple color when cooked! Saura Pride Sweet Potatoes has developed a business model to successfully work with their network of growers, to support increased sweet potato production, to seek out new uses for sweet potatoes, and to deal with all the marketing and processing aspects of the sweet potato, without additional burden on the individual farmer.
