garlic crop of 2016 has been fully harvested and been curing for the
past few weeks. We're now taking orders for this years crop and will
deliver as soon as possible. Please email

place your orders!
Our delicious bulbils are also still available for purchase, both rice sized Porcelain and Purple Stripe and pea size Rocambole. These rare bulbils are a special treat.
Bulbils are a delicious food source. Each bulbil is encased in its own skin ensuring its vitality and flavor deep into Spring/Early Summer.
If enjoying cheese and crackers add a bulbil to each bite for intense garlic flavors and healthy benefits.
Crush them and use them in burgers or as a steak/fish rub.
Even sprinkle them on pasta, salads, or add to soups for enhanced flavors.
The bulbil formed in its umbel sheath is never in direct contact with the soil. As planting stock this spring you are starting out disease free. As we approach the end of March, good garlic seed is scarce. Our bulbils are the best low cost way to start your garlic health garden.
We have two distinct strains available:
Rocambole - Peas to Marble sized
*approximately 60-70 umbels per pound
Purple Stripe - Large rice sized
*approximately 600-700 bulbils per 1/2 pound
Check for our prices in the bulb prices tab.
Thank You to everyone!

"Garlic Protects Joints"
In this first large-scale study of diet in twins, 327 pairs of female
twins, average age 59, reported their diets over a 16-year period.
Researchers measured signs of arthritis and found that those who ate the
most fruits and vegetables were 39 percent less likely to develop hip
arthritis. Those who ate the most vegetables containing allium—common in
garlic, onions, and leeks—were 30 percent less likely to have hip
arthritis. Later, in a lab, doctors discovered a compound in allium that
suppresses cartilage-damaging enzymes and believe that garlic holds
promise for treating
and preventing hip osteoarthritis.
