All That Grass

Turn your edible crop farm into a sod and turf farm for an alternative way to make some green.
COURTESY OF DG TURF FARM

Grass can be a real cash crop. Grass is also known as sod, and sodding a barren patch of land is the quickest, easiest way to achieve a lush, green lawn, so growing sod can be a lucrative agriculture commodity in areas with a steady local market, especially during a housing boom.

Sod farming, also called turf farming, can be tough to get into, especially if you start from scratch, but it might provide an unexpected alternative crop in the right location.
