Fred Zander started Zander Sod Co. Limited at a time when sod was harvested, loaded and unloaded by hand!
Over time, harvesters were developed that cut and rolled the sod for a person to pile by hand onto pallets. Cranes were introduced onto the trucks for easier unloading.
Now we have automated harvesters that cut, roll and pile the sod directly onto skids. We have forklifts to load out fleet and automatic tarping systems on our trailers! Truck mounted forklifts are able to efficiently unload and place the turf at the site. Times have certainly changed!
Right from the beginning, Zander Sod Co. Limited has been dedicated to quality turf, exceptional service and giving great value. As much as technology has changed our business, our core values have remained the same!
Our administration offices are located in Kettleby , Ontario, north of Toronto and just west of Newmarket. This operation is the hub for our dispatch, accounting and fleet management activities. Fresh sod is available for pickup here but it is always advisable to call ahead to confirm.
Our fields are located throughout the Beeton and Alliston areas. With over 3,000 acres in production, we are often harvesting in a number of locations daily. If you would like to pickup sod direct from the field, please contact our office at (877) 727-2100 to confirm our exact location.
