WELCOME TO THE GARLIC PATCH!
We hate cubicles. But, my goodness, we do love our garlic! At our family farm in Northern Colorado, we’ve been hard at work to bring you, what we think is, the best naturally grown garlic in the country. Every ounce of garlic on this site was planted by hand, weeded by hand, and harvested by hand, and when we say, “by hand,” we mean our hands. We’re convinced that every ounce of effort we put into our garlic translates into better, fresher, and fuller flavor on the dinner table. bon appétit!….
Artichoke Family | Porcelain Family | Silverskin Family | Purple Stripe | Turban Family
Chesnok Red – OUT OF STOCK
This is possibly the most popular variety of heirloom garlic on the market. Also known as Shvelisi for the village in the Republic of Georgia from which it was first gathered, Chesnok Red is a vigorous variety producing unusually large bulbs with an average of 9-10 generously sized cloves. Particularly well-suited to baking, Chesnok Red has a rich, sweet flavor with no heat.
Persian Star – OUT OF STOCK
Also known as Samarkand after its native home in Uzbekistan, Persian Star is widely regarded as one of the more visually attractive garlic varieties. Marked by deep purple streaks, this garlic has a typical clove yield of 6-8 per bulb. Persian Star offers a full flavor with minimal heat.
Purple Glazer – OUT OF STOCK
Another variety hailing from the Republic of Georgia, Purple Glazer has fat white cloves with deep purple streaks. Purple Glazer has a strong flavor with no heat and minimal aftertaste.
Red Rezan – OUT OF STOCK
A natively Russian variety, Red Rezan bears a purple and silver coloration. Each bulb will yield roughly 8-15 cloves. Red Rezan has a complex flavor with mid-range heat and is well suited to cooking with meat or vegetables.
Siberian – OUT OF STOCK
This variety migrated to the US by way of Alaskan fishermen trading with Siberian subsistence farmers. Despite its origin in colder climes, Siberian is an excellent performer in both hot and cold environments. Another purple streaked garlic, Siberian bulbs yield an average of 5-9 fat cloves each. Siberian has a milder garlic flavor that does well as a complementary spice that will not overwhelm other flavors.
Music – OUT OF STOCK
A vigorous Italian cultivar, Music outperformed all other varieties in trials at Michigan State University yielding 13,500 pounds of garlic per acre! Each of its large bulbs yield 4-8 substantial cloves, and its flavor has been described as rich with a mild spiciness.
German White – OUT OF STOCK
Also known as German Extra-Hardy, this Hardneck variety is popular in the Northeast due to its strong resistance against the cold. It has a strong, full flavor, and each bulb yields 4-5 large cloves.
Northern White – OUT OF STOCK
With an origin tracing back to northern Germany, Northern White does exceptionally well in cold climates, perhaps more so than any other variety. Its large bulbs yield an average of 6 fat cloves per bulb. Like many other garlic from cold climates, Northern White has a robust, spicy flavor.
Georgian Crystal – OUT OF STOCK
Collected from the intermountain region in the central part of the Republic of Georgia, this variety yields mammoth cloves that often cause it to be mistaken for the misnamed Elephant Garlic (which is actually a leek). The large white bulbs will typically yield 4-6 large, fat cloves. Georgian Crystal gives a strong, clean garlic flavor, but it lacks the pungently biting quality of many other Porcelains.
Georgian Fire – OUT OF STOCK
Native to the same part of the Republic of Georgia as the Georgian Crystal variety, Georgian Fire has a spicier kick than its neighbor. It also tends to yield more cloves per bulb (generally 6-8 each).
Polish Hardneck – OUT OF STOCK
Also known as Polish Carpathian, Polish Hardneck migrated from Poland and is now widely grown throughout the Northeast and Northwest US. Its resiliency has made it a favorite among garlic growers in less favorable climates. The dark green plant yields large bulbs with 4-6 large cloves. Polish Hardneck has a strong, hot, lingering flavor.
