Our six acre, family owned farm has been growing exceptional & sustainable plant material and offering high quality landscape supplies & services since 1965. Founder Bob Oldfield had a lifelong dream of returning to his hometown to be a farmer and to raise a family. He discovered, at the base of the Blue Hills, a beautiful farm in need of some care. He worked day and night to grow both his business and his family. Now forty years later, two of Bob’s five children, are following in his bobcat tracks.
Gardening is a lifelong commitment for his children Maggie & Josh. Each year they work toward attaining their dream of creating a place for people to come and enjoy the beauty of gardening and a place for people to get ideas for their own gardens by viewing the plants in a natural setting. Now with an exceptional staff, beautiful buildings and a loyal & growing customer base, Thayer Nursery is an unrivaled source for all your gardening needs.
