The Miller Plant Farm Team

Since the business started, Miller Plant Farm has had its share of wonderful, hardworking employees for nearly a century. In the peak spring months of operation Miller Plant Farm may employ as many as twenty-five, mostly part-time seasonal help. In the summer harvest months our small full-time staff is supplemented by a few part-time employees as well. We cherish the opportunity to work with and get to know many great folks in the York community that share the same passion of high quality plants and produce. Our core staff consists of just six who are employed year round full-time. Combined, our staff of six posseses 75+ years of horticultural expertise. Please come out to the farm and meet us first hand and allow us to assist you in all of your horticultural endeavors.
