Wally, along with his wife Sharon, have been farming since 1960 when they purchased a small sod farm in Sanilac County from Wally's father, Dow Huggett. Over the next forty years they raised four children and expanded the sod farm to 800 acres. In the early 1980's they started a sod farm in the north Dallas area of Texas. That farm has since grown to 900 acres and supplies sod all across northern Texas.
Working hard and enjoying what you do has always been the secret of Wally and Sharon's success. Growing cranberries in northern Michigan is just one more success story of their lives.
