Sweet Potato Festival

Beth and Wesley Thomason are getting ready for the Sweet Potato Festival to be held at Thomason Herb Farm near East Berlin on Saturday and Sunday.

Thyme is an herb now likely found in many spice racks, but in the Middle Ages, warriors going into battle ingested it to fortify their courage.

Visitors this weekend to the Olde Thyme Herb Farm and Gift Shop near East Berlin may not be fortified for battle, but they may partake of a broad array of dishes made from sweet potatoes.
