How to Order Red Hen Sod

Piece of SodRed Hen Sod can be purchased a few ways. Sod can be picked up by you or delivered by us, OR you may contact a local garden center where we regularly ship. See below locations for contact information.

We price our sod by each 2-foot x 5-foot piece (10 square foot), so have your square footage ready when you call. See our measuring tips to help you figure out how much to order before you call, as sod cannot be returned once it is harvested for you.

All sod harvesting is weather permitting. A heavy rain my slow or stop us from harvesting sod. We can always discuss re-scheduling should weather become a factor.

Picked up at our farm

We harvest sod fresh for each order, so always call ahead up to a day before to schedule your pick-up. Freshly harvested sod is typically located in one of our many sod fields surrounding our Red Hen office. We will guide you to the “field of the day” for pickup when your order is confirmed. Sod pickup times may vary but we can usually get it ready same day.

Customers will normally pick up between 1 and 200 rolls. Each piece of sod is rolled for transport and weighs approximately 35 lbs.

Each 4-foot x 4-foot pallet of 50 rolls (500 sq. ft.) weighs approximately 1,800-2,000 lbs. Sod is loaded by our experienced turf crew by forklift or (small amounts) by hand. For larger amounts, a pickup truck and/or trailer is recommended with safety straps.

You can haul about 10 rolls in a car, 15 rolls in a large SUV, 50 rolls in a half ton pickup and 100 rolls in a three-quarter ton pickup. Customers are welcome to make multiple trips per day if needed.

Offering Contactless Pick Ups

In one phone call, we can take your order, confirm your pick-up time, obtain your credit card payment, and send your receipt & directions directly to you (via text or email). No need to leave your vehicle! For stocked grass seed and fertilizer products for sale, we offer call ahead/curbside service at our office location.

Delivered by Our Semis

Customers should call 4-5 days in advance to schedule a delivery. We will always confirm your order 24 hours before delivery and keep you updated on arrival time.

We can deliver quantities of 50 rolls or more. Pricing for delivery is not the same as pickup and will be based on quantity and delivery location.

Customers needing more than 200 rolls (4 pallets) find it easier to have it delivered. Our drivers have a forklift for removal and can place the pallets where you need them at the drivers’ discretion with safety in mind.

We serve Mid/Northern Indiana & Mid/Southern Michigan region. If you are unsure if we can deliver to your area, just call us.

Pallets received from your order can be kept or returned to our office. Pallet cost is included with the cost of the sod, so you can keep them or dispose as you like. Sorry, we cannot make special trips for pallet pickups.
