Our Turfgrass Dream
For years, we dreamed of installing a turfgrass farm, and in 2022, our dream finally became a reality. After much prayer and preparation, and with the help from our good friends at 4 Point Turf in Lubbock, we began sprigging two licensed hybrid bermudagrass varieties in late June.
In July, Tamara stepped away from her education career to work on the farm and manage the operation. It turned out to be an extremely hot and dry summer in West Texas, and everyone thought we were crazy for trying to establish grass! Despite the tough conditions, through frequent prayer, abundant irrigation water, and God's grace, both varieties flourished. We began harvesting sod on a limited basis in the Fall. In October, Antonio Aguayo joined Third Day Ag Ventures to help out with responsibilities on the farm.
We hope to begin harvesting sod on a larger scale and increase our customer base in 2023. Our goal is to glorify God by blessing others, and we are excited to see what the future holds!
