    I've got access to about 3 acres of land I'd like to try sod farming at. Does anyone have any advice for getting started?

    There aren't any at all close by here. Which is why I'd like to grow a small crop and charge a premium because its fresh.

    soil condition, irrigation and seed quality are going to be your deciding factor ing your sod farm. Having access to a sprayer to apply liquid fert would also be a plus too.gl
