Spring Pre-sale is on now, so you can reserve your favorite types! Some varieties sell out quickly, so a pre-order is the best way to make sure you can get them. Garlic is set aside on a first come, first served basis and shipped in September.
All orders ship by USPS Priority Mail, which offers the most affordable service for small and medium sized packages (that also include free tracking and insurance). Check out our shipping page to see more info! I try to keep rates affordable throughout the country.
I offer several options to browse garlic, since I grow over 120 varieties and different folks have browsing preferences.
For those who just love super simple lists, I have this page where all 120+ types are laid out to find quick and easy in a spreadsheet. The names are sorted alphabetically in one column, and by family in another, so you can search either way. This is great if you're looking for an exact type.
Finally, you can also browse by keywords, here. Click the search button (magnifying glass) and type in what you're looking for.
Most commonly, people shop by the (genetic) families of garlic- click the button here for that.
My Growing Practices
No artificial herbicides- I control weeds with a deep layer of straw and/or leaves that improve the soil over time and create a healthy environment for worms and microorganisms.
No artificial pesticides- I believe in protecting our native pollinators. Therefore, I spray nothing, organic-approved or not, that would harm any of our pollinator species which are under threat. When I can, I use cover crops like buckwheat to improve feeding opportunities for pollinators.
Only organic-approved fertilizers and rock minerals- While not certified organic, I’m 100% committed to organic inputs only. I test my soil every year for both macro and micronutrients and carefully adjust my fertilizers accordingly.
Sustainable farming beyond the labels- Farming sustainably includes viewing our planet as a closed loop system. Sustainable farming cannot be built around geologically temporary gluts in hydrocarbon fuels and their byproducts. I use organic mulch to build the soil's resilience over time. I try to harmonize plowing and tilling practices to preserve microbial life. I count on the total health of my soil to grow healthy, robust garlic. My goal is that my soil will be more farmable and productive than when I started.
