Product description

Only culinary garlic will be sold from here on it. Here’s the link for the culinary, some will be a bit larger since we are cleaning out - Culinary Garlic

It’s late in the season and we will be moving along the last 25lbs or so. Reach out if you want a large portion of that for a good deal. 

We start pre-orders in April for 50% of our estimated harvest. I joke we should name our garden shop Garlic Gardens! 

Garlic is a wonderful addition to our gardens. It is found in just about every household in America. It is very easy to grow in most of the United States. Our seedstock would be considered Large to Jumbo, over 2” unless we have it noted. We only sell garlic that is good seedstock.

All of our organic garlic is grown locally in the Driftless Region where we live and farm, while the conventional garlic comes from various sources around the US. 

There are 3 types of garlic to choose from: Hardneck, Softneck, and Elephant.  Here is the lowdown on what this means so you can choose the best one for you and your family. 

We ship in mid to late September, depending on the variety. Please contact us to see what we have in stock 

Types of Garlic

  • Hardneck - Cold Hardy to Zones 3-7 (and colder), Produces Garlic Scapes, Produces less cloves than softnecks but is generally larger, it stores for 3-5 months after harvest
  • Softneck - Best for warm areas (zones (8-9) as they don't need the cold to make cloves, store for up to 9 months, smaller than hardnecks
  • Elephant - Not really a garlic but an allium that possesess garlic like flavors. A clove can take 1-2 years to split into cloves. Plant in the fall or cooler season for areas with no frosts.  Very large cloves with mild garlic flavors. 

Growing Instructions:

For those in zones 3-7, plant garlic about 2-4 weeks before your first hard frost (not your first frost, but your first hard killing frost).  Garlic needs about 4-8 weeks to root in and grow before the ground freezes. 

  • Plant 4" Deep
  • Space 6-8" apart
  • Mulch with 2-4" of straw, wood chips or other organic mulch, but refrain from pine straw or cedar chips.
