In 1988, the Prescott’s expanded operations to include the cultivation and distribution of improved turfgrasses. The immediate success of turf production was so overwhelming, the Prescott family decided to stop growing row crops and focus on turfgrass. Twenty years later, JW Turf has expanded into a top quality sod harvesting facility, encompassing over 1,600 acres of land.
JW Turf Farms continues to stay on the cutting edge of technological advancement and environmental preservation. The farm is anchored by
agri-farmer, Warren Prescott Sr., a member of the Southern Seed Certification Program and a member of the Florida Sod Growers Cooperative. Under Prescott’s leadership, the farm became the original Celebration Bermudagrass stock provider in the United States. Prescott is beginning to diversify, having recently embarked on the venture of organic cattle farming. Over 800 head of cattle now reside on the farm.
Operated for over 20 years by a certified technical staff, JW Turf Farms produces eight different turfgrass varieties. The farm has provided turfgrass to golf courses, polo and sports fields, residential communities and commercial facilities across the state. JW Turf Farms prides itself on top quality turfgrass with top notch customer service.
