Starting a Sod Farm
In 1969 Clifford became disheartened with the traditional agriculture business. With the advice of an uncle he diversified the business by growing a few acres of cultured sod. Francis Tinker, with Northrup King, supplied the much needed knowledge for this new endeavor. Mr. Tinker said, "Why some day your whole farm will be in sod." He was right.
Clifford’s son Jack joined the farm in 1973 and is now President of Oleson Sod Co.
