Steele Sweet Potatoes - A Tradition of Quality.The Steele Plant Company was founded in 1953 in Gleason, Tennessee by Claude Steele and Dudley “Butch” Sanders. Claude was a produce man and Butch was a school teacher. At first, the potato farm was designed to be a second income for the pair, but it quickly became a full-time business and family tradition. Today, the Steele family continues this tradition … even the youngest members of the family helping out. The Steele Plant mission continues to be “provide the best quality sweet potato plants and the best service possible.”
