Beginning with a small acreage in 1988, consumer interest in organic sweet potatoes has grown. A.V. Thomas Produce is the largest grower, packer, shipper of organic sweet potatoes in the U.S.

Organic Yams & Sweets

Production now revolves around five varieties… Garnet/Diane, Jewel/Covington, Sweet/O’Henry, Oriental/Murasaki and Purple/Stoke’s Purple are shipped under the “Natural Beauty” label.

For consumer convenience, A.V. Thomas Produce developed 2, 3, 5 and 10-pound mesh bags and Organic PLU stickers as an easy way to purchase organic sweet potatoes. The bags and PLU’s give any marketing entity the ability to conveniently display organic with conventional produce.

Fresh, natural and organically grown fresh vegetables have become very popular today. We are proud to be a national distributor and farm direct sweet potato vendor for quality organic produce.
