Still Farming Like It’s 1699

Season 4, Episode 01

Back in the third ever episode of Where The Food Comes From, we visited a remarkable farming family, the Bradfords of Sumter, SC. Then, they were still growing the same crops their ancestors had for 200 years, from the same seeds, on the same land. Dad Nat, Mom Bette and their five kids formed the work force.

We thought Season 4 would be a great time to check back in with the Bradfords and see what’s changed. The two oldest kids are now off to the military and school. The farm has grown from 10 acres to 24 — a focus on supply high-end restaurants in big cities makes it work. There are some new crops in the mix. But they’re still farming like it’s 1699.
