Represented Heartwood Partners' portfolio company Patten Seed, in the acquisition of Frog Pond Turf

December 10, 2021

Patten Seed Company completed its second add-on acquisition since Heartwood Partners’ initial investment and expanded its sod-growing footprint westward by purchased Frog Pond Turf in December 2021.

Frog Pond was established in 1997 by the Baker Family (Bill, Kimberly and Brad) and is headquartered in Opelika, Ala. Brad Baker, farm manager of Frog Pond, will continue in that role at Super-Sod managing over 1,400 acres of turfgrass production.

This acquisition marks Super-Sod’s first foray into cultivating Alabama farmland and enables their reach into the Auburn, Montgomery, and Birmingham markets, while offering additional supply of Bermudagrass and Zoysiagrass to serve their Columbus, Newnan, and Atlanta, Georgia customers.
