Marvelous Roots is a small certified organic garlic farm that offers seed for sale from June through November. This is our second year offering our garlic online. Last years harvest was successful and the positive feedback from our new customers made all the hard work worthwhile. Our garlic is tucked away for the winter and we are looking forward to watching it come up again this spring. Last year we offered 7 varieties of hardneck garlic, 1 softneck (Thermadrone) and 2 kinds of shallots. For 2014 we will have new varieties to offer. Check with us early to reserve your garlic, as we sell out fast.
We farm organically and sustainably. We live on a working ranch that has been certified organic for over 20 years. My mother and father-in-law paved the way for my wife and I, making it easy to be organic and preserving clean food for generations. This is our second year selling our garlic online. All of which is grown right here on our farm, ensuring that you receive the highest quality possible. Due to our smaller size we have great customer service and quick turn-around times on our shipping and handling. Upon purchase, you should receive your garlic withing 3 to 4 days.
Varieties That We Sell
Organic gourmet garlic seed is made available to local stores, farmers markets, and online. Our nutrient dense soil and cold winters allow us to grow a nice selection of hardneck varieties. Now we are experimenting with different softnecks and are happy to see good results. Every year we should have new varieties available. Here’s what is available for 2014:
- Artichoke – Thermadrone
- Asiatic – Korean Red

Around the Farm
This year will be an exciting year for us here at Marvelous Roots. We have decided to take a step back from the farmers markets and focus more on our garlic crop and putting up a year’s supply of food for ourselves. You can only be good at so many things and if we had to pick one it would be growing garlic. After a few trips to grocery store, putting up our own food seems like good business plan in itself. Many farmers and ranchers don’t have time to put up the food they grow. We thought we’d give it a try. So, keep checking in to our blog, about the trials and tribulations of a couple of modern day homesteaders.
