Orapeake Farms was established in 1991. We have been growing Baker Sweet Potatoes for 18 years and
have just added Hayman Sweet Potatoes. We would like to offer to you the opportunity to grow some of the sweetest and most flavorable potatoes around!
The Baker Sweet Potato was developed at the Virginia Agriculture and Trucking Station in Virginia Beach, Va in the early 1900's. It has an orange flesh that cooks up soft and moist and is sweeter than most varieties when initially dug, it only gets sweeter as it cures. This is an older variety that is not found much anymore. My local customers all say that it is the best sweet potato they have ever eaten.
The Hayman Sweet Potato came to the Eastern Shore
of Virginia from the West Indies through Elizabeth City,
North Carolina. It is a very sweet white sweet potato, a
heirloom variety that has been grown on the Eastern Shore of Virginia for generations.
