Around the Garlic Farm:
First off, I would like to thank you for visiting our website. Our customers are very important to us. Feel free to email, call or drop a note in a bottle and send it across the sea.
We have been frantically getting ready for our 2015 harvest season and working to update our website and online garlic seed store. We are determined to make our website safe, secure, and full of the right information to help our customers grow big beautiful garlic bulbs, like the ones we grow on our farm.
I am confident enough now to offer our garlic seed bulbs for sale, pre-order only. Mother nature is cooperating and it’s looking like a go for a great year of garlic. I will feel even better when all of our bundles are all lined up hanging in the barn. After at least five weeks of curing we will start shipping. They may be ready as early as August this year! Ideally it’s better to wait though, until the summer heat dies down a little. Or one could end up getting pre-roasted garlic instead of the viable seed they wanted to plant in their garden. That said, it looks like we are going to have a bumper crop of garlic and it’s going to be an early harvest. Keep your fingers crossed.
Where We Grow Garlic
We are a small independent family owned organic growing operation and our goal is to provide high quality seed at reasonable prices. Our rural Eastern Oregon farm is located on Double Diamond Ranch, a certified organic cattle operation owned by my wife’s mother and father. We had the benefit of moving to land that has been chemical free for over 20 years. Our farm is surrounded by high desert sage brush and is nestled up close to the Eagle Cap Wilderness. Across the valley you can see the Elkhorn Mountains. The loamy clay soil that we grow our garlic in produces nice big bulbs. The hardneck garlic thrives here, and most years, so do our softneck varieties.
We have several kinds of garlic to choose from, all with their own unique attributes. You will not be able to find these types of garlic bulbs in the store! Our bulbs are oily, strong smelling, and wonderfully healthy. Many chefs seek out the different flavor qualities that each individual garlic variety possesses. Some are hot, some have a little bite and some “candy up” when you bake them. Others have citrus and mustard overtones. The list goes on and on.
You can easily see how easy it is to get addicted to growing new varieties. I only hope growing your own gourmet garlic brings you as much joy as it does me. If you are interested please check out our shop page. We have garlic seed bulbs for sale, as well as culinary garlic and shallots. I appreciate your interest in our business and in supporting small farms. Please don’t hesitate to call or shoot me an email for our bulk garlic seed pricing. Or just say hi.
