Agway of Cape Cod began in 1993 as a small lawn, garden, and pet supply store built in Orleans by Peter Wile and his wife Susan. The Agway family tradition began in Northboro, MA where Peter’s father and farm owner Roger Wile opened an Eastern States Co-op farm and feed store in the early sixties.  Eastern States developed into the Agway farm dealer network, as Roger’s son Peter took an active role in the management and operations of the store.  Peter purchased the business from his father in 1983 and ran the business until he sold it in 1991.  

Soon after, some good friends from Orleans convinced Peter that the Cape was in need of a good old lawn, garden, and pet supply store.  Hence, the Agway family tradition continued as Peter moved to Brewster with his wife Susan and two children and opened the Orleans store at 20 Lots Hollow Road in 1993.  Peter’s son Josh started his career early by loading cars with soils and mulch after school.  The business soon grew and the Wiles installed the greenhouse for the Nursery Center at 10 Lots Hollow Road.  

The Wiles’ venture continued when Peter purchased Arbor Way Garden Center at 686 Route 134 in South Dennis in 2000.  Another six years later, he purchased the business Greensleeves Nursery at 1005 Main Street in Chatham.  Now with three stores and nearly 100 employees during the busy spring season, the Wile family has settled in as a proud member of the mid- and lower-cape business communities.  Operating the Orleans, Dennis, and Chatham stores as Agway of Cape Cod, Peter and Susan are still active owners.  Son Joshua is General Manager of the three locations.  Daughter Jessica helps with marketing and accounting as a manager in the business office.  They have an great team of managers and employees that are dedicated to providing exceptional customer service. 

The Wiles are proud to operate their Agway stores as a family business that is tied to the local communities.  In addition to the retail operations, Agway maintains great relations with local non-profits and charities.  They work with organizations such as the Animal Rescue League of Boston, Orleans Pond Coalition, Eastham Dog Owner’s Association, local Garden Clubs, hosting events and providing donations.  They are also active members in the Orleans, Dennis, Chatham, and Eastham Chambers of Commerce.  Agway’s largest annual donation is their Mutt Mitt program.  About five years ago, they addressed the issue of keeping our parks and beaches clean and promoting responsible dog ownership by donating dispensers and cases of Mutt Mitt dog waste pickup bags to local towns and organizations.  This program has grown into Agway’s largest community donation program, totaling to over $5,500 per year.  

Agway of Cape Cod and the Wile family are dedicated to providing its customers and the community with quality service, and hope to continue the tradition for years to come.
