Paul Huggett

Huggett owns Paul’s Turf and Tree Nursery, Inc., which offers a mix of 200-400 acres of sod production, a 100-acre deciduous and evergreen tree nursery, and 200-400 acres of grain crops in rotation. “I am very blessed with good employees who allow me the freedom to run my business and not work it,” says Huggett, who in the mid-‘90s took over a family business that began as a mint farm in 1955. “Variety creates the greatest job satisfaction.” Huggett is current past president of the Wisconsin Nursery Association Board and has held board positions with the Wisconsin Sod Producers Association (including a term as president) and the Wisconsin Turfgrass Association Board.
