Red Hen sod can be purchased several ways. A roll of sod is 2 feet by 5 feet, which covers 10 square feet. Each roll weighs about 35 pounds. Sod is priced and sold by the square foot. See our tips on measuring to help you figure out how much sod to order.
Picked up sod at our farm
- Our typical pick up customer purchases from 1 to 200 rolls of sod. You can haul about 10 rolls in a small car, 75 rolls in a half ton pick up and 100 rolls in a three quarter ton pick up. People will often make 2 trips in one day. Some customers have a pick up and trailer to haul this amount in one trip.
- We do the work of loading your sod in your vehicle so you don't have to!
- We harvest sod fresh for each order, so call the same day you want to pick it up to have us harvest it. Rain sometimes prevents us from harvesting, and you might not get any sod if you come to our farm after a rain without calling first.
Delivered sod by our trucks
- We can deliver quantities of 50 rolls or more locally.
- People needing more than 200 rolls find it better to have us deliver it because we bring our forklift and take the sod from our truck and drive on your site spotting it where you need it. This saves the customer the time and effort of carrying sod from their vehicle to where it is needed.
- We stack the sod on special plastic topped pallets, and use our forklift to slide the sod off the pallets. We return the pallets to our farm, thus saving you the expense of buying pallets or hassle of returning them.
- We suggest people wanting a delivery of sod call 4 or 5 days ahead of when they want it to place a tentative order. We schedule your delivery and then confirm your order about 24 hours in advance. If something happens and you need to delay a delivery, no problem, we simply reschedule.
