Grits and More at Bradley’s Country Store

Bradley’s Country Store, located on a lonely two-lane canopy road north of Tallahassee, is among Florida’s magical places. Frank Bradley’s grandmother, Mary Bradley, began selling sausage out her back window in 1910. By 1927 her son L.E. Bradley had added the gristmill and store. Bradley’s Country Store is still going strong. As I write this, Frank is still grinding corn, slaughtering hogs and selling sausage on the premises. His daughter, known as Miss Jan to everyone in the community, runs the old-fashioned store. Don’t visit without an appetite and an ice-chest to haul your edibles home. My longtime friend Maurice Rivenbark shot and produced this video when we were both working for the Tampa Bay Times. The story is in “Alligators in B-Flat.’’

    An ice chest is required for a visit to Bradley’s. We lived in Tally in the 1980’s and even though we’ve been gone for almost 30 years, we still make sure to stop there (or send our friends) when we’re near. It’s the best pork in town, and Lord knows, there’s a lot of that in T’town!
