About Aaron's Homestead Products
Aaron's Homestead Products (AHP) is woman-owned family business, operating in Corry, PA.  AHP is the Gardening Products Division of Corco Industries, Inc.    Corco Industries started out as a powder coating job shop in 1996. In 2002, we expanded our shop to include contract manufacturing with full sheet metal and wood shop manufacturing capabilities. 

Aaron's Homestead grew out of our love of the simple life and our passion for growing our own food. It is important to us to make a high quality product right here in the United States, and to keep Americans employed. It is also important to us to help people feed themselves no matter their limitations, whether they have mobility problems or lack of gardening space or experience.  

​Another major concern that lead to the creation of the elevated garden planter boxes is food safety. Recently, in the news, people have been getting sick and even dying from e-coli contaminated produce. By growing your own food, you know where your food comes from, who has touched your food and you can control what types of fertilizer and pesticides (if any) are incorporated in your food. 




Seedlings planted in the spring. One tomato plant, 5 cauliflower, chives, 3 marigolds, 2 green peppers, and 6 heads of romaine lettuce, 2 green bean seeds.
2 weeks after planting the seedlings
After harvesting the lettuce and cauliflower there was room to re-plant. Green beans, basil, parsley, spinach and carrots were added to this planter box.
Over 60 Roma tomatoes were harvested, just on this one plant!

How to Plant an Herb Garden
* Cilantro, you can plant 4-8 plants as long as you harvest the plants while still young. If you want it to go to seed (Coriander) then leave only one plant per square.

Harvest often, especially the basil and parsley, to keep plants healthy and of manageable size.

You will want to keep the taller plants in the back so you do not shade the lower growing plants.

Make sure you stake the cucumber and tomato plants well so they do not blow over in the wind.

Radishes grow very quickly, so once you have picked the first crop, replant more, and then again for a bountiful harvest. The same goes for the lettuce and spinach.
