FRIEND OF THE LAND- JANUARY 2022
Protect The Harvest would like to congratulate Mac and Sandra McLeod, January’s Friends of the Land.
The McLeod’s own and operate Fralo Farms and Wildlife Catering Service. Mac worked his entire life on his family farm prior to purchasing it himself.
The farm is diversified; consisting of 100 acres each of corn and soybeans; 40 acres of hay; 140 acres of timber; two turkey farms; one acre of okra; and over 100 head of cattle. The cattle are on a rotational grazing program, helping to maintain the health of the herd while easing the stress of the pasture land. The McLeod’s produce their own hay to feed their herd. Mac & Sandy are also turkey growers for Prestige farms. Through his twenty years of experience in turkey production, he realizes the importance of this portion of his diversified operation and currently operates two turkey farms.
In addition to his farming operations, Mac started a wildlife catering service, selling seeds to assist hunters in planting food plots.
The McLeod’s believe in passing their knowledge of farming on to the next generation. They always try to educate their grandchildren in the industry they serve. They are true conservationists and believe in maintaining the land to ensure a future in farming and hunting for the next generation. Both Mac and Sandy have been long-time supporters of South Carolina Young Farmers.
