A. H. Hoffman, Inc.
The Hoffman brand was created in 1934 at the height of the depression. Originally a division of Hoffman Seeds this business was founded in order to provide the home gardening consumer with easy to handle small packages of gardening products.
Hoffman products have been comprised of many new horticultural products and packaging designs during its history. Hoffman invented one of the first "cut and pour" designs that received a patent from the U.S. Government and is still used today. Hoffman also produced the first lightweight soilless potting mix for home gardeners.
Today, the Hoffman brand is made up of a broad array of quality horticultural products for the home gardener. The company's primary products include potting soils, soil conditioners, specialty and organic fertilizers.
Gardening is America's #1 hobby - the industry has grown from $ 4.2 Billion in Sales in 1968 to $ 76.5 Billion in 1998!!
Good Earth strongly believes that it is time for a national company to emerge and present to the gardening public products which are of higher quality, easier to use and guaranteed to produce results.
One could compare these products to the "TV style dinners" Today's gardener or
"Yardner" does not want to spend many hours in their garden but wants to perform their yardwork with ease and get beautiful results. Therefore, cost of products offered becomes secondary if the product will do as promised.
GOOD EARTH is planning on servicing this market with :
1. Improved packaging designs which will sell themselves in this self-service market.
2. Premium quality products which are lightweight & easy-to-use.
3. Develop a marketing program which will assist gardeners with a multi-step gardening program guaranteed to produce the most beautiful Lawn & Garden results.
