About Sweet Potatoes
Vick Family Farms is one of the largest growers, packers, and shippers of sweet potatoes in the nation.
The sweet potato has been North Carolina’s official state vegetable since 1995, and North Carolina is ranked #1 in sweet potato production. Nutritionists say that sweet potatoes should be a part of any diet. Sweet potatoes are also rich in calcium, fiber, complex carbohydrates, beta-carotene, and antioxidants (potassium, vitamin C, and manganese). “A sweet potato a day keeps the doctor away!”
