Farming has been a part of Alec Bradford’s life for as long as he can remember, and it’s been in his family for generations. His grandfather was a farmer and doctor who raised chickens, cows, and hogs on his farm in Murfreesboro, TN, where Alec spent his summers learning how to raise livestock and grow vegetables. His grandfather taught him the basics of farming and husbandry while his grandmother taught him self-reliance and empathy.
As they say, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and so after graduating from college and spending some time working in the city with a standard 9-to-5 job, Alec found himself longing to be back on the farm.
So he ditched the city life and left for the country. His time spent in the city had left him mildly depressed and severely unfulfilled, but while on a fishing trip intended to breathe some life back into him, Alec found more than he was expecting.
Ten years later, Leaping Waters Farm farms over 800 acres of pasture, and sells quite a lot of their product to both home cooks and professional chefs up and down the east coast.
Today, Leaping Waters Farm is beyond excited to be part of the Charleston, SC community.
