Barb Melera describes the company’s situation on Facebook:
“We set about to restore this Company because it is the most historically important American small business in existence. It is the only American company, still operating daily, that existed when this country became a nation. Its founders were honorable men who helped establish and guide the agricultural and horticultural industries of this country in the 1700s, the 1800s and the 1900s. Landreth exemplifies American business and the ethics and integrity that built this nation.
On Wednesday, August 31, 2011, the Company’s accounts were frozen by a garnishment order initiated by a Baltimore law firm. If this garnishment order is not satisfied within the next 30 days, Landreth will cease to exist and a part of America’s history will be lost forever. I need to sell 1 million 2012 catalogs to satisfy this garnishment and the cascade of other indebtedness which this order has now initiated.”

The catalogs are only $5. I know that is a bit much for a catalog, however they are printed in the US. Please take a moment to learn about this company and perhaps spread the word and help save this heritage company.
Damnit, I'm a hundred bucks in the red at the bank or I would do it in a heartbeat. I hope they can be saved...
Shade and Sweetwater,
