How to Pre-Order



Maximum 4 pounds of garlic bulbs per order.
$2 to $4  per bulb depending on size of bulb.

Table garlic is also known as eating garlic can be planted, but you should do your own inspection for quality and be familiar with common diseases before planting .  I cannot guarantee they are absolutely disease free.  It is best to always plant any new planting stock  you acquire by isolating it  from your current collection of garlic in a seperate plot for a few years.
 The availability of each garlic for  planting changes from year to year. We select bulbs that are a nice shape, plump, have an average size of cloves (not necessarily the largest bulb) and show no visible signs of disease. We have had our garlic tested for nematodes in 2011, and the results came back negative.  Please  read more about pests  by following  these links:. Fusarium ,  Bulb and Stem Nematode (OMAFRA),   Skin Blotch,  Leek Moth.
