In 1957, Dow Huggett started his sod farm with a roll top desk & 30 acres. His farm was planted with mint prior to 1957.
At that time, Huggett Sod Farm, only had one type of sod, and this was harvested with a “Ryan” walk behind sod cutter. Dow & his crew of 6 (including his son Wallace) rolled the sod pieces, loaded the sod & also unloaded the sod, all by hand!
Utilizing a small stake truck, deliveries were made within a 100 mile radius of the farm located in Marlette, Michigan.
In 1961, Wallace Huggett took over the daily operations of the sod farm. Over the next 40 years, he expanded the farm to include (800 - 1000) acres and added a tree nursery on an additional 90 acres. The business was incorporated in 1966.
In 1982, Wallace Huggett extended his sod business to Texas. He opened Trinity Turf Nursery, in Pilot Point, Texas. Trinity Turf Nursery has 600 acres in sod production of Bermuda Grass, Zoysia Grass and Bent Grass. It has become an acknowledged quality leader in the Dallas/Fort Worth sod market.
In 1989, Wallace’s son, Daniel Huggett, started his own sod farm near Columbus, Ohio. Columbus Turf Nursery grows Bluegrass, Bluegrass/Fine Fescue blend and serves the central Ohio area.
In 1990, Wallace Huggett ventured into the cranberry business. Michigan Cranberry Company, located near Cheboygan, Michigan, is the largest cranberry farm in Michigan. Cranberries from this location are sold to markets throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe.
In 2002, Mark Huggett, Wallace’s 2nd son, took over the daily operations at Huggett Sod Farm, Inc.. Huggett Sod Farm currently grows Bluegrass blend, Bluegrass/Fine Fescue mix and Trees. We ship to the entire state of Michigan, Ohio, and parts of Indiana.
The current operations at Huggett Sod Farm, Inc. have changed a lot from 1957. The commitment to quality products has not.
