Work Environment

What’s it like to work at Cavicchio’s? Far from Ordinary.

Our work environment is rewarding, challenging, and tech-savvy. We are a modern farm – operating more than 200 beautiful acres across three locations in Massachusetts. We are diverse, use golf carts to get around, and have a casual dress code. Our office is a farmhouse, and our workspace extends from our state-of-the-art greenhouses to the fields outside. We work hard to deliver exceptional service to our customers in our three wholesale areas: the Pick-up Area Greenhouse, Landscape Supply and Stone Yard, and our Nursery at Lincoln Road. We encourage forward thinking and cultivate career growth.

Let’s grow together.
