Our farm headquarters are located 20 miles west of Omaha at Mead, Nebraska, on land purchased by the Thorson family in 1880.   For 90 years, grain and livestock were raised on this 180 acre farm.  Today, the farm has grown to more than 500 acres of turfgrass and over 60,000 square feet of greenhouse production space.


Through agreements with the University of Nebraska, the University of California, Barenbrug USA and the RTF® Turf Producers Association, we own exclusive rights to several of our products. Todd Valley Farms has succeeded and grown by offering the newest and best in grass cultivars produced by the latest technology.  We have also been blessed with a “family” of knowledgeable, dedicated employees with years of experience to serve the needs of our customers.


During the 1970’s we were the first turf farm in the region to have 100% of their sod production irrigated. We purchased truck-mounted forklifts 25 years ago to aid our customers when delivering their sod.  Searching for a better grass in the 80’s, we were the first to grow turf-type fescue sod which requires less water and has better insect resistance. “Big Roll” sod and turf-type buffalograss were introduced during the early 90’s.


In 2000 we developed a new process for growing buffalograss plugs that allowed the plugs to be shipped via UPS and made an economical way to establish lawns anywhere in the world with this remarkable water-saving grass.   We have signed a research agreement that grants us rights to all future releases of new buffalograss varieties from the extensive University of Nebraska buffalograss breeding program.


We didn’t stop there. In 2003 we became a member of the RTF Turf Producers Association and now offer our customers the best fescue available.


In 2008 we started selling plugs of the first and only dwarf bluegrass, Bella Bluegrass. Bella is a super-dwarf bluegrass, that grows only 2 to 3 inches tall.  It can be left un-mowed or mowed to less than an inch.  It has a very dark blue green color. It has excellent heat and drought tolerance.


Browse through this web-site and learn about our products.  If you still cannot decide on which grass is best for you, visit the Turf Garden located at our office where you can see all of your choices side by side. And remember, if you want to save money, “buy the best”!  The best is all we offer.


Curious about our business name?

The name Todd Valley comes from a geographic name for a river valley, which in prehistoric times was a 5 mile wide river between Mead and Wahoo. This valley of fertile farm land, which runs from North Bend to Ashland, is still known as the Todd Valley and is considered to have some of the best soil in the country for producing agricultural crops.
