Charles Munford DS’00 – Louisiana

The sausage company founded and owned by Charlie Munford DS’00 in Mississippi was recently featured in Gambit: Best of New Orleans. After finishing at Deep Springs, Charlie established Two Run Farm in his home state on land his grandfather had farmed. It was among the very first farms in Mississippi to be certified organic. Charlie then completed his MA at Yale before returning south to establish a farm-to-table company supplying pork directly to restaurants in New Orleans. Business is growing and he purchased his own slaughterhouse and smokehouse in Louisiana. His operation has proved so successful that the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry approached him for help with their runaway overpopulation of wild boars infesting Louisiana’s pine forests. Apparently, Charlie has a way with smoked meats and building a market for the porcine critters is proving successful – good for the environment and the grocery. But, don’t take our word for it, read the article.
