I was just informed by the owner, Brad Stieg, that because he is nearing retirement, that the Harvest Guard Reusable Canning Lids business is being put up for sale.

Note that this is an essentially recession-proof business, because when times get hard, people tend to buy more canning lids than they do in good times.

The following lists the assets and associated items included in the sale of Harvest Guard Reusable Canning Lids.

Mr. Stieg writes:

“We would love to see a like-minded entrepreneur take the reins and continue forward, especially considering the economic storm that we see on the horizon.

I am more than happy to answer any questions, or seek any input you may have regarding this sale and the information I have provided below.

On a side note, I am also selling my commercial building in Fruita, Colorado, in which I am currently conducting business. Here is the listing for the building.

Please note that I am willing to sell the business and building together, or separately.”
