Meadows Farms, Inc. is one of the largest independently owned nursery and garden centers in the country, with twenty-two retail locations, employing over 750 employees, and a landscape facility housing 39 designers and sending out over 70 crews a day. A cattle company is also under the Meadows Farms umbrella.
Meadows Farms Nurseries is managed from the top down, starting with owner and CEO Bill "The Farmer" Meadows and his wife Betty. Their son Jay Meadows heads up the daily operations as President of the company, with a staff of 17 working from the corporate office located in Chantilly, Virginia. Decisions are made there and passed down through the Vice Presidents, who also serve as regional managers over the nurseries. In this way, the nurseries are all managed in a similiar fashion, with everyone working from the same blueprint.
