Garlic Seed


Allium Sativum
 Garlic.  Maybe the most important crop we grow?  We use it nearly every single day of the year, and it has been so incredibly reliable for us in growing and storage.  
 We've found garlic to be a wonderful companion plant for young trees and shrubs, really reducing damage from mice, voles and rabbits.  We often grow our garlic following a potato crop when growing for production.  We also use garlic as a companion planting in fields where we're growing trees from seed to help protect them in their delicate infancy.  It has worked very well for us.
 Our garlic is grown in a fully organic field (we just don’t pay to be certified) using only hand tools to prep and manage beds, no irrigation or fertilizers of any sort, and just a rich mulch of organic hay applied in the fall.  The garlic you get is pure and clean and incredibly well adapted to minimal management and care. By not watering or supporting it much as it grows, we believe we offer seed that has a high capacity for challenge and stressful conditions and can still size up.

We offer mainly hardneck garlic and have rocombole, music and german white types.  They are all grown together so you will get some combination of all three unless you specify you are looking for one type.  They all grow well together and add variety and resiliency to your patch.
We have limited supplies of softneck garlic, but enough to get some patches started. We grow an heirloom purple skinned type with surprisingly large cloves for a softneck garlic.
