Thank you for your interest in working at Glacier Nursery, LLC! If you have enjoyed working on a farm, in a greenhouse, performed landscaping, sold plants in a garden center, been a greenskeeper, or even worked in a community garden, we would be interested in visiting with you.

Our mission at Glacier Nursery, LLC is to provide high quality, hardy plants to our customers at competitive prices. We work hard to make sure each plant we grow is landscape ready. There are three main departments at Glacier Nursery that each contribute to this goal: Production, Order Fulfillment, and Administration.

The work is almost entirely outdoors, physically demanding, mentally challenging, and changes with the four seasons. We work in a structured atmosphere and are committed to safety and efficiency.
