It started in 1979 when Dakota Peat began providing peat products to turf managers and golf courses. Being located in NW Minnesota, Dakota Peat was able to provide superior peat products that have been harvested from the basin of the ancient Lake Agassiz, which covered the entire landscape from Northern Minnesota across the Dakotas and central Canada. Some of the most fertile land in North America and an expansive region of peat bogs are where you’ll find Dakota Peat. This pre-historic product proved to be invaluable for those turf managers as a tool to create an optimum growing environment for grass to reach its peak potential with consistent results.
Since then, Dakota Peat has been used in over 30 collegiate and professional sports stadiums along with countless golf courses and is now a brand that is recognized throughout the industry for quality and consistency. Dakota Analytical was added and is an independent A2LA accredited soil-testing laboratory that provides prompt, accurate, and confidential insight to your soils and to assure the best results for your next project.
Environmental Stewardship Standards
DAKOTA growing systems have proven to be solutions to attain these goals. The elements involved in this stewardship process are: water, energy, soil management, and efficient use of inputs.
DAKOTA ESS are the product of four decades of research and success in the turf industry.
Giving Back to the Environment
DAKOTA Peat strives to better the environment by returning a great portion of the land we mine for peat products to an improved game refuge; planned waterways, nesting areas, and wooded areas for moose, deer, bear, ducks, and geese, etc. All projects are privately funded but are in full cooperation with the local Department of Natural Resources.
