All Things Garlic
Garlic is one of our favorite crops to grow. Our soils are naturally well suited to produce beautiful, flavorful bulbs. Garlic is one of the few crops where the part we eat is also the part we plant, making it accessible for backyard growers to grow garlic for both food and seed. Check out the varieties we grow below, or click here to skip straight to our garlic growing guide.

Hardneck, Marble Purple Stripe
Also known as Russian Penicillin, Bogatyr is as visually striking as it is tasty. Its marbled, purple-wrapped cloves maintain their complex and sharp flavor when roasted. Easy to grow compact variety with easy to peel cloves. Can store up to 9 months from harvest, so it may last you through the winter. 4-8 cloves per bulb, ~42 cloves per pound.
German Extra Hardy
We got hooked on growing garlic because of German Extra Hardy’s dependability and resilience in colder climates. With a rich nutty flavor, it works beautifully in pestos and sauces, and its jumbo cloves make for easy peeling. Can store up to 9 months from harvest, so it may last you through the winter. 4-7 cloves per bulb, ~25 cloves per pound.
Polish White has proven to be one of the most winter hardy softnecks. Polish White has very large cloves, making them a chef’s delight in the kitchen. A great garlic for roasting, and top choice for making garlic braids. Our longest storing garlic, can store up to 10 months from harvest, so it will last you through the winter. 9-15 cloves per bulb, ~60 cloves per pound.
Local variety from Sands Creek Road in Hancock NY! Incredibly easy to grow and a consistent producer of stunningly large, beautiful bulbs. This chef’s favorite is known for its full-bodied flavor and cloves that practically peel themselves. Stores 5-6 months from harvest, so best to use by mid-winter.
7-10 cloves per bulb, ~47 cloves per pound.
Hardneck, Purple Stripe
Perhaps the prettiest garlic we grow, with gorgeous pink/purple-streaked skins. Vietnamese Red has a strong spice that dissipates quickly with a pleasant finish. Its creamy texture and high sugar content give it a sweet and buttery flavor. Fantastic for roasting and baking. Stores 7-9 months from harvest, so may last you through the winter.
10-12 cloves per bulb, ~75 cloves per pound.
