In Season 1, we showed you how North Carolina sweetpotato farmers do what they do — which is grow an amazing two-thirds of the U.S. sweetpotato crop. But, as with all farmers, there’s another side to show. Farmers are committed to serving and giving back to their communities. In this episode, Part 1, we’ll follow the journeys of the amazing Ripe For Revival touring pantry that brings fresh produce into communities where it’s needed most.
In Part 2, we’ll meet a sweetpotato grower who doubles as chief of his volunteer fire department. We’ll talk with a cancer survivor who is part of efforts to help others in the community. And we’ll meet an amazing man who walked away from a stellar career in the NFL to come home and farm — and give away everything he grows!
