About Us: About the Company

The Beginning


Bruce Moyer left Massillon in 1964 bound for Ohio 
State University to be a football manager with Woody 
Hayes's Buckeyes and to study Veterinarian Medicine.  
He began working in the OSU greenhouses and fell in 
love with the horticulture industry.  He graduated from 
OSU in 1969 with a degree in horticulture and took his 
first job teaching at a brand new vocational/technical 
college in Zanesville, Ohio.  It was in Zanesville where 
he began working in the landscape industry and 
eventually decided to start his own business back in his 
hometown of Massillon.  Starting with five acres in 
1978, he planted his first trees in syrup buckets.  Over 
the years, Moyer's has grown from five acres to 25 
acres and has kept several of the same employees for 
over 20 years.  All of the family is involved in the 
business and Bruce's youngest daughter, Lara, has 
taken over as garden center manager.

Here at the nursery, the season begins in the early 
Spring and closes down just after Christmas.  We grow 
over 15 acres of trees and landscape plants on location 
for retail sales and landscape contracts.  We have four 
original "growing" greenhouses as well as two sales 
houses.  Construction was begun in the early part of 
2003 on an additional greenhouse growing space.  Two 
gutter connecting greenhouses with an adjoining pole 
barn were in place by April 2003.  These new 
greenhouses have provided our company the 
opportunity to grow many new varieties of plants and 
to keep the quality of our plants at the highest level.  
In the early Summer, as the retail rush begins to slow 
down, we gear up to grow almost 12,000 
Chrysanthemums.  Many of our mums will be sold to 
wholesale customers and used on landscaping jobs, in 
addition to being sold in the Garden Center.
In early November, the Christmas season begins.  A 
large part of our Christmas business is the production 
and sale of grave pillows and decorations. Live and cut 
trees, poinsettias, and other greenery are also for sale 
until the close of our season on December 24th.

We hope to see you soon!
