Tad Murphy

Farm General Manager

Tad is the engine of Forkland Springs Farmsupervisor, welder, builder, and tractor repair. He sees what needs to be done and gets it done. Tad and his hard-working wife Cindy, have been at the farm since the first pond levees were built in 1994. In those days, we were raising 1-2 M pounds of catfish annually. As a talented aquaculturist, he quickly learned how to grow shrimp, and get them to thrive at our farm. Since 2013, we have been expanding our shrimp operation. Tad supervises all aquaculture activity from feeding, aeration monitoring, and water acclimation.
