Welcome to Steele Plant Company, Inc!
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.”
We are no longer shipping for 2017. But if you have any questions about your crop and advice on harvesting, just contact us and we will be glad to help. We would also love to see your photos of your crop when harvested in the fall. We hope that all of you have a safe and healthy summer . Be sure to check with us in January when we begin taking orders for Spring 2018.
