Sod Production Services recently announced Craft Turf Farms as the exclusive licensed producer of Tahoma 31 bermudagrass in southern Alabama. Craft Turf Farms planted its first production fields this fall and will harvest the grass in the spring of 2024.

“We’ve been interested in grass for quite some time,” Chandler LeGault, farm manager for Craft Turf Farms, said. “With some knowledge and background from new staff members and recent relationships we have made, it finally felt like the right time to move forward with Tahoma 31.”

According to Sod Production Services, Tahoma 31 bermudagrass is among the most winter-hardy bermudagrasses on the market today. It derives its name from the Native American word, Tahoma, which means frozen water.

“With its remarkable cold tolerance, beautiful color and texture, proven performance at multiple heights of cut, overall growth habit and increased popularity, we feel it will be the perfect grass to add to our portfolio and help set us apart in our region,” LeGault said.

Turfgrass researchers at Oklahoma State University developed Tahoma 31 in response to the growing demand for a cold-tolerant variety. It is a fine textured, dense grass that offers cold tolerance, drought resistance, early spring green-up, wide geographic adaptability, an aggressive growth habit that heals quickly from wear, shade tolerance and salt tolerance.
