Warm 2017 So Far

We aren't typically quite this green this early but we've had an unseasonably warm Winter so far this year. We've really been green for almost the entire year it seems like. That's not to say ALL of our fields are bright green but they're getting there. Different fields are always a little bit different depending on the dirt, the rain, and the surrounding area (if it's surrounded by woods or something). All those can make a difference in how the grass weathers the seasons. Here are a couple of photos from one of our fields a couple of weeks ago on March 6th. Y'all take care out there and keep us in mind for all your sod needs! ...

Photos From the Sky

Everyone has a drone these days seems like and they do make some really cool photos. Here are a few from February of activity on the farm. Thank you Andres for these pics! Okay, yes the farm is mostly brown right now but what do you expect, it's February! The fertilizer will give it some good green color as soon as we get some warm growing weather. ...

Bill Murff – 1935 – 2016

Bill Murff – 1935 – 2016

Bill Murff, our founder, passed away on Tuesday, February 9, 2016. He started this company in his spare time in 1969 while he was still teaching at Crosby High School. He was a great influence on many people in this area and around the country really. We thank you for your thoughts and prayers in this time of grief and we want to share a slideshow we put together of his life that we will play at the memorial service. http://murffturf.com/wp-content/uploads/God%20Made%20A%20Farmer%20720P.m4v...

Little Video Shoot

This year we purchased a couple of FireFly ProSlab 155 harvesters that automagically (I know that's not a word but I just like it!) stack the grass on pallets. We really like them so far and are doing an excellent job for us. A couple of weeks ago FireFly and one of their partners, National Instruments, wanted to come out and video the harvesters working and take some photos. I believe National Instruments makes the electronics for the harvester and they are working together to make a short marketing video about their products. They gave us some of the video footage for us to see and play with and so we took some photos and put them together with their video to make a little video ourselves. Love the drone footage they gave us to use!! Amazing how things look from above! They used this DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone while they were here at our farm. Pretty sweet system. So here's...
