About Us

Heath Manufacturing, Co. originated in 1948 by the Heath Family to manufacture bird feeders for a local retailer. Over time, the company expanded its product offering to include various bird feeders, bird houses, suet cakes, lawn and garden products, planters and ancillary related products, including seed scoops, squirrel feeders and baffles. These products are sold to retailers and distributors serving the home, lawn, and garden markets across the United States and abroad.

In 1958, Heath began offering suet bird feed as an adjunct to its houses and feeders. The caked suet product line includes straight suet with no additives and various mixtures containing seeds, grains and nuts formulated for specific species of birds. Today, all suet related products are manufactured at the Coopersville Michigan location.  

In 2005, Heath Manufacturing, Co., acquired a full line of U.S. flags and accessories, and began doing business as Heath Outdoor Products. This natural addition created a smooth blend in the Heath product line for a well-rounded offering of backyard products. Now, with over 50 years in America's Backyard, Heath Outdoor Products has both the experience and expertise in offering quality products to add value to your home and garden. 

Chapin Manufacturing acquired Heath Manufacturing in 2006.
