Rock Ridge Farms created Boyette Brothers Produce in 2012. Four generations of Boyettes have operated Rock Ridge Farms, which continues to grow sweet potatoes, peanuts, corn, soybeans and other crops on more than 7,000 acres. While the farm harvests a variety of crops, it lacked a packing house for sweet potatoes.
With close proximity to truck routes on major Interstates, and operating less than a three-hour drive from the Port of Norfolk's container ships, we decided to launch Boyette Brothers Produce to create a hub for packing and transport of sweet potatoes. Our family built a sweet potato packing house in Wilson, North Carolina to service our customers' growing needs. With three loading docks, two dedicated packing lines (stainless steel packing line and an organic packing line), our center bustles six days per week. We were one of the first sweet potato pack houses in North Carolina to add a stainless steel packing line. Our state-of-the-art facility allows us to accommodate any packing request throughout the year. Contact us to schedule a tour of our sweet potato packing house. You're welcome to visit and tour with us!
Our packing facility in eastern North Carolina is a prime location for domestic and international shipments. With close proximity to the Port of Norfolk for foreign exports, and just one mile (as the crow flies) from Interstate 95 and only 30 miles to Interstate-40.
We have farmed on land in Wilson County since the 1920s, and keep spreading our roots here. Not only is Eastern North Carolina the heart of vegetable production for our state, North Carolina is the nation's #1 producer of sweet potatoes. We're proud of our family's multigenerational farming legacy, plus our local heritage and state reputation for being a leader in produce. We are equally proud to be located in the United States' #1 sweet potato-producing state. North Carolina produces half of the nation's sweet potato supply, according to the North Carolina Sweet Potato Commission.
Boyette Brothers Produce grows then packs by the pound in bulk, boxes and containers for domestic and foreign markets. We offer variable packaging and private label options. In some areas, particularly Europe, packages are displayed in grocer areas and markets. With the packaging exposed directly at the consumer's purchase point, customers who choose a custom package with their logo enjoy consistent branding exposure.
