Greetings from all of us here at All Seasons Homestead Helpers.
years ago the Vermont Garden Way Living Center retail outlet closed its
doors as GardenWay and changed its focus to outdoor power equipment.
With that came an end to their gardening products catalog, a valued
resource for many gardeners, home canners and do-it-yourselfers.
Seasons Homestead Helpers was a Garden Way equipment dealer, and
continued to get many requests from the old catalog: the Cider Press,
Squeezo Strainer, and Garden Cart had long made Garden Way a trusted
source for quality gardening and food preparation products. The phone
calls were steady, we heard you. In January 1993 -- not a big gardening
time here in Vermont -- we began researching the types of products
formerly carried in the old GardenWay catalog.
By the spring of
1994, stacks of folders containing product information from all over
America covered our desk. Our research revealed that many products in
today's market are built to minimum standards, with the idea that the
product will be disposed of and replaced when it wears out. We wanted to
supply people with exactly the opposite, products finely crafted enough
to pass on to one's children and carry the parts necessary to maintain
these quality products.
In 1994 we published our first catalog and launched our mail order business. In 1999 we developed our website, www.homesteadhelpers.com,
to provide customers with a more convenient way to order products and
also provide tips on using some products as well as a forum to aid them
in finding answers to questions about home and garden products or
Today, we are a leading retailer of the Squeezo
Strainer, one of the original Garden Way products. This all metal
strainer has been a staple in kitchens for over 50 years and plays an
essential part in helping prepare fruits and vegetables for canning.
Many sales are made to people that used one years ago in their
Grandmother's kitchen. A real heirloom product all made in the USA!
April of 2013, we reorganized under new management and have moved
the business to Poultney, VT. We look forward to continuing to provide
you with the Squeezo Strainer and other great homesteading products.
