Bemis Farms Nursery -- Our goal is to be your plant place
Bemis Farms Nursery is a progressive family run garden center, farm, nursery, and greenhouse in Spencer Massachusetts. We welcome you to our website. Our goal is to be your plant place. Your source for plants, supplies, related products, and information. Whether you are a first time planter, or an experienced gardener, we are here for you. In today's world there is almost too much information available. A Google search will come up with 120,000 results to your plant question. Generally about 50,000 will say one thing. Another 50,000 will say the opposite. And the remaining 20,000 we're never really sure what they are saying. We want to help you cut through that information overload.
Bemis Bunny on the road!
My dad started Bemis Farms Nursery along with my grandfather in 1947. His idea was to develop long term relationships with customers so they could trust his advise. In 1947 that was a fairly common approach. And Tina and I still believe it is today. We are not trying to get the one time sale. We would rather see you become successful with plants. At times that may mean losing a sale. But in the process, we hope to gain a customer.
