Description

Meet the two men who run Stokes County's Saura Pride Purple Sweet Potato LLC. Learn about the health benefits of eating purple sweet potatoes, that the color purple is nothing to be afraid of, and how these potatoes have saved tobacco farmers in the county. The Tobacco Communities Reinvestment Fund (TCRF) assists farmers in developing new sources of agricultural income through provision of cost-share grants. This story is part of a series documenting innovative farmers throughout the state of North Carolina. This program is made possible with support from the North Carolina Tobacco Trust Fund Commission. Photography, audio, and production by Alix Blair.
