About the Author
The North Carolina SweetPotato Commission was founded 60 years ago to help NC growers find new markets for their product. Back then, tobacco ruled the roost for NC farmers -- it sustained generations and built the agricultural industry. But obviously the world changed -- as tobacco use declined, North Carolina needed a crop that liked the same soil, labor force, and hopefully used the same equipment as tobacco stepped out -- hello, sweetpotatoes! The Commission works tirelessly to find new markers for growers and spread the word about the wholesome goodness of North Carolina sweetpotatoes.
