Fred started working in the sod fields for his dad, company founder A.J. Cameron, when he was 9 years old. In those days, the business was mostly about sod production and Cameron’s supplied sod all across New England. The only time Fred has not been working at Cameron’s was when he left to serve his country as a United States Marine in Vietnam.
Fred and his brothers, Don and Bill, helped the company expand and grow during the 1970’s and the 1980’s. When the company began landscape installations, Fred assumed the role of estimating, coordinating, and managing landscape installations throughout the region and landscaped some of the largest projects in New England.
Today, Fred is still the leader of our team, leaving the road to assume day to day management of the company. He can be found in the back office working the phones or driving out to job sites to meet with his sons, Scott and Steven, and general contractors. With his vast hands-on knowledge of the industry, Fred is the go-to person for advice and guidance and freely shares his knowledge with anyone that asks.

He has broad and extensive experience in the landscape trade, which has been a tremendous asset for the variety of responsibilities he has at Cameron’s. As General Manager, Darin’s role includes landscape estimating, hydro-seed sales and estimates, scheduling, and managing many of the day to day operations. Darin started at Cameron’s working seasonally while earning his Associate of Applied Science at the University of New Hampshire. He went on to earn Bachelors in Management at Daniel Webster College. He is a Veteran of the US Navy.
