Plow & Hearth is a national catalog, retail, and internet company
specializing in "Products for Country Living." We make our home in beautiful
Madison, Virginia, whose rural beauty and traditional values serve to remind us
constantly of the "spirit of country living". The original Plow & Hearth catalog
continues to specialize in unique, high-quality products for country living, the
HOME catalog features home furnishings and decorative accents and find practical
solutions for everyday living in the Problem Solvers catalog. Our company also
has retail stores and catalog outlets.
We began in 1980 with a small retail store and produced our first catalog in
1981. From the beginning, country living and its values have guided Plow &
Hearth. Our first color catalog cover (the interior was still black and white)
depicted the beauty of a Blue Ridge morning as the last bit of fog burns off.
Customers who ordered from that catalog had their orders filled from the old
granary on founders Peter and Peggy Rice's farm.
Since then, we've grown tremendously. We received a spot on INC. magazine's
list of the 500 fastest growing companies in America for four consecutive years
(from 1986 to 1989). In 2004 alone, we mailed more than 63 million catalogs and
sales exceeded $100 million. We are now a leader in the catalog industry and the
premier source of products for country living.
A lot has changed over the years, but our belief in the values of country
living is as strong as ever. At Plow & Hearth we use the values and the spirit
of country living to guide our business. We believe in treating our customers
like neighbors and friends. We offer only products we use or would use
ourselves; we offer them at fair prices; and we guarantee them without
