Our Story

Kansas Turf, LLC was founded in 2008 by current President Jake Farrant. Over 30 years ago the Farrant family jumped into the golf course construction and sod industries. In 2008 the family was approached about building a football/baseball/softball complex in rural Kansas. The company brass wanted the focus to remain on golf courses and fitness, but Jake pursued the opportunity and Kansas Turf was born. Over the past nine years the company has grown from 3 employees to over 70. The list of capabilities and experienced operators set Kansas Turf apart from any other sports construction company in the midwest. Site work, golf course renovations, sports complex design and build, synthetic turf, natural grass, and cemetery renovations are some of the highlights of the company portfolio. Any of the Farrant enities are run through the same basic principles in life and business "Faith, Family and Future". Through our faith with our family we can build anything towards the future.
