My Growing Practices

Go to About Us Page for Full Version


Time-tested varieties and practices result in better garlic- in every sense of the word. Genetic diversity, disease resistance, flavor, and growing quality.

The early years...

I expanded my garlic as a homeowner’s rebellion against the monotony of mowing. This is from 2015 as oversized garden became undersized farm.


Grá den Talún Farm works to preserve the shared heritage of humankind, and life itself, by stewarding as many heirloom varieties as possible, while using traditional breeding methods to advance the frontiers of new varieties suited to challenging climates.

Early soil type:

Lithic. (rocks)

What does "Grá den Talún" mean?

When I first started I wanted a unique name to reflect the spirit and goals of the farm. "Grá den talún" /graw dehn tah-loon/ is the phrase "love of the land" in Irish Gaelic.

I had also read marketing advice saying don't pick unpronounceable names but I don't want to be the one thousand, seven-hundred and twenty-fourth "SpiritLedgeRockSharedHarvest Farm" now do I?

Also thanks to the "New Jersey" customer who got me thinking about garlic in pots during correspondences last year.
