About Us

Central Sod Farms was established in 1976 on a small 20 acre farm in Wheatland, Illinois. A family operation from the start, Central Sod soon grew to over 300 acres of sod production overseen by Dick Warpinski Sr. and his 9 children. The early days of sod production was much different than it is today. To the right is a picture of Dick Sr.'s family in a sod field with an early delivery truck.

In the 90s, two of Dick Sr.'s sons moved to Maryland and opened a sod operation. The Illinois Farms expanded sod and grain production. During the continued growth of the company, a strong emphasis was placed on producing quality sod that exceeds in standards. Landscapers and site developers know that their clients need grass that not just looks flawless but is also healthy, mature and will survive. Central Sod provides healthy and mature sod that not just looks good, but also performs and thrives! Homeowners turn to Central Sod for advice on growing great lawns.
