Bethel Farms has been growing since day one, serving Florida and the Southeast since 1958. Currently a team of over 100 people on over 4,000 acres, Bethel Farms has been “growing” since day one. From its beginnings in 1958 as a small cattle and poultry operation in Central Florida, the company has blossomed to become one of Florida’s leading agricultural companies; producing cattle, citrus, sod and grass plugs. Being a steward of the land, and conscious of everything that is done on the farm, Bethel takes an active role in protecting the environment. Whether it be an advanced telemetry system, or innovative ways of using irrigation tiles, the efforts are paying off. And while protecting the environment is one of Bethel’s goals, the purpose of this farm is customer success. That’s why it’s important for us to produce the latest genetics for turfgrass varieties that demonstrate better drought tolerance and water efficiency. Since water restrictions will continue to be a major issue, Bethel is cultivating more drought tolerant turfgrasses.
