What Would You Like to Know?


What does naturally grown mean?

We do not use herbicides or pesticides.  All of our garlic is hand weeded.  We hold to the same high standard organic farmers follow.

What is the difference between seed garlic and culinary garlic?

Seed garlic is of higher quality and is suitable for planting or eating.  The bulbs are larger, averaging 2+ inches.  Culinary garlic is smaller, think grocery store size, averaging 1 1/2 inch bulbs.

When should I plant my garlic and how long does it take to grow?

Under right conditions, garlic typically takes nine months to mature.  Garlic grows best when it receives at least 6 hours of full sun daily.  Plant garlic in the fall 3-8 weeks before the first autumn freeze.

What is the difference between softneck and hard neck garlic?

Softneck garlic grows best in areas that have mild climates, moderate rainfall, mild to warm springs and cool to cold winters.  Softneck garlic doesn't form scapes and contains several small cloves within a bulb.  Cloves will have more paper layers than hardneck and will store longer.
Hardneck garlic grows best in areas with harsh winters, prolonged exposure to freezing temperatures and less rain spread throughout the year.  Hardneck garlic is aptly named because it produces a hard stem late spring, called a scape.  The bulbs will contain larger cloves and less papers around the cloves.
