Born of pure ingenuity, the Garden Hod reflects the very best of farmers' 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. These 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.

  • Measures 19-1/4"L x 11"W x 7-1/4"H 
  • Capacity of approximately two pecks (16 quarts)
  • Empty weight 3.5 pounds
  • Handmade in the USA with parts that include: a steambent oak handle, birch side rods, pine end pieces, and food-grade PCV coated wire mesh body

Fire branded with The Old Farmer's Almanac name and sun!

I was always fascinated by one my grandmother had to collect eggs from chickens they raised. I never found out which of the relatives grabbed it, but glad to see they are still selling them.

My friend Tammy is big into growing her own food and cooking healthy for her family. She's homeschooled her kids, she cooks, cleans, gardens, but always has time for family and friends. A hod would make harvesting her garden easier. Honestly? I just want to see her smile. She does so much for others, I'd like for her to take some time for herself. That's it, really.

Good luck everyone

I would use this for many things inside to hold lots of "stuff" that I accumulate. Outside, I would carry plants in the spring and harvest in the summer and fall.

I would load it full of my vegetables and then wash them off, what a great idea!! Love it! And thank you!

I would use it more than a purse this summer and made in Maine! I grew up at grandmothers in Presquile, I miss it there. I am currently taking care of two 83yr olds with separate farms! i would carry it everywhere!

We finally have a house with a yard! We're in AK so need to get planting asap and this will be great to reap what we sow. Looking at a little greenhouse for winter so it won't get much rest hopefully!

Submitted by

I would use it all year. Between the fruit trees, garden, and chickens... it will get some mileage.

My mom and I just bought a plot in our community garden. We have a lot of yummy things we'll be planting in it! I'll be taking the kids with and they can plant their own! It'll be a great way for the kids to collect their bounty! :)

This would be perfect for carrying all the veggies from my garden.My garden is quite a ways from our house and I use whatever is handy to carry our produce in, even sometimes a laundry basket!!! So thanks for this idea...

I would love to give it to my father in law that at 85 years old still plants tomatoes for his family. This will be awesome for carrying them back and forth between his grown children! Thanks for the opportunity to enter.

Submitted by

I would use it to harvest all the garden produce I have planted. Can't wait to harvest and enjoy the fruits of my labor.

How long do you expect the Hod to last if used to wash garden vegetables? I'm concerned the oak and pine will rot with exposure to water on a daily/weekly basis, even if sun dried afterwards. Have you done any of that type of testing or has it not been out long enough to know. Thank you!

Submitted by

I was looking at this too and saw your comment. Just my two scents as a gardener: You could use a natural organic wood sealer like you would used on wood used for raised garden beds. It would at least prolong the life of this.

Submitted by

Hods have been out for a long time. You'll get 20 to 30 years of vegetable washing and rugged use easy. Having said that, the Hod is not meant to be left outside constantly or submerged for long periods of time. As long as your Hod is allowed to dry between washings you'll be fine.
