Welcome to Steele Plant Company, LLC!
Steele Plant Company, Tennessee’s largest sweet potato plant dealer, 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 sweet 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 “provide the best quality sweet potato plants and the best service possible.”
FUN FACT: Regular or ‘Irish’ potatoes are members of the nightshade family Solanaceae and the scientific name is Solanum Tuberosum. But sweet potatoes are members of the morning glory family and the scientific name is Ipomoca Batatas.
–Be sure to check out the suggested harvesting instructions for your sweet potato crop.
