Hugghins History


Mr. and Mrs. Hugghins

What is now Hugghins Sod Farms, Inc. saw its beginning in the 1970's when McRhee and Faye Hugghins purchased a few acres of land in south Alabama and started their first sod farm. Through honesty, hard work, and a great customer following, they turned that small farm in south Alabama into what is now Hugghins Sod Farms, Inc. 

Due to the hard work and dedication of Mr. and Mrs. Hugghins, what began as a small operation in south Alabama has grown into a company that includes four sod farms located throughout the state of Alabama. Although Hugghins Sod Farms, Inc. suffered a tremendous loss in 2009 with the passing of Mr. Hugghins, Mrs. Hugghins remains a very important part of Hugghins Sod Farms, Inc. They have three sons who are each actively involved in the operations of Hugghins Sod Farms, Inc. They strive in the continuing effort to make Hugghins Sod Farms, Inc. a successful business and do so on the same business philosophy of Mr. and Mrs. Hugghins: “ provide your customer with a superior turf product, quality service, all at a competitive price ”. 
 
This pursuit of excellence has led to the growth and expansion of Hugghins Sod Farms, Inc. We pride ourselves on our solid customer service ethics and the quality of the sod that we produce. Mr. and Mrs. Hugghins have built a business to be proud of and a company that continues in its efforts to be the best that it can be.  
 
You, our customer, are important to us. Give us a call or come by to see us and become a member of our family. We all know that any successful business begins with hard work and good business ethics; however, here at Hugghins Sod Farms, Inc., we also have come to realize that it is the GRACE of GOD and satisfied customers that have made and will continue to make our business a success.
