Garlic

There is not a particle of life which does not bear poetry within it.          –Gustave Flaubert

clipart garlicOur garlic is “super natural” – we aren’t certified organic but we grow according to (and often beyond) organic principles. No chemical fertilizers or pesticides of any kind are used. The soil has been chemical-free for at least two decades (probably a good deal longer). The soil is prepared for growing garlic by enrichment via green-manure, nitrogen-fixing crops. No garlic bed is used to grow garlic for more than one season running. After garlic is harvested, the beds are planted with nitrogen-fixing crops and then allowed to lie fallow for a season. This practice not only builds the soil and thus the health and quality of the garlic, but it also safeguards crops from becoming diseased.

All garlic has been cured, cleaned and is available for consumption, storage or seed for your own garden.

“lnchellium garlic  is considered the benchmark variety. The cloves have a mild and savory aroma and their flavor is neither mellow nor too pungent and provides a rather rich and robust taste with a medium level of spiciness, even when eaten raw. Cooking the garlic simply brings out more of the garlic’s depth.”
