Born of pure Yankee ingenuity, Pike's Original Maine Garden Hod reflects the very best of Maine's long tradition of functional art, craftsmanship, and utility. It was designed as a harvest basket, but is used for everything from a picnic basket to a knitting basket to a place to store kindling at the fireplace.
Hods were originally used by both the French and the British colonists for everything from carrying bricks and mortar to measuring and washing fish. For over hundred years, Maine's clam diggers have used hods to hold and rinse their catch. Maine Garden Hods, styled after the traditional clam hod, are built to last from quality hard and soft woods.
Designed for harvesting and washing plants, fruits, and vegetables, gardeners have discovered that the Hod lends itself to hundreds of other uses—inside and outside—any time of the year.
