Family turf business continues success

If you've played golf, walked in a city park, or just admired a neighbor's new lawn in the Wichita, Kan., area, chances are you're familiar with Cranmer Grass Farm's quality turf.

For 55 years the Cranmer family has been the provider of choice turf for golf courses, parks, homes and commercial properties in Wichita and surrounding areas. And, with the next generation coming on board, the reputation of Cranmer Grass Farm, Inc., looks to continue for many years to come.
