Chapel Hill Forge - Leggett Family

Our Story

Chapel Hill Forge started in 2016 as a result of a job loss. Their blacksmith Zad has faced it all - from the loss of his dad and brother at a young age to cancer to a heart attack and beyond. His family is in the process of moving their homestead to a larger property, which you can follow on YouTube, but learn about their backstory here...
