What Makes Our Garlic Green?
All of our gourmet heirloom garlic originates from organic seed stock and was purchased right here in Wisconsin. It is often difficult for small scale farmers to meet the demands of the government in becoming "certified" organic. As a small scale farm ourselves, we may never have a certificate acknowledging our achievements in organic practice, but our commitment level to you is there all the same. For our family and for yours, we will continue to grow our produce completely chemically free, while using sustainable and natural farming practices.
Our practices make all the difference. Please compare the superiority of our garlic to the one generic garlic variety you are used to seeing at your grocery store:
Every one of our 4,000 garlic bulbs is inspected for quality control. We clean our garlic only after it has had a chance to cure. Because garlic is more susceptible to bruise right after it has been pulled from the ground and before its outer layers have dried, we take extra care in how we handle it. This is also true of cleaning. We do not clean our garlic with water as others may because we believe the extra moisture can lead to mold and the spread of disease. We hope you can appreciate the measures we take in caring for our produce and we hope it makes all the difference when helping you choose where to buy your garlic. So, when all is said and done, our garlic may not be dirt cheap but it is dirt friendly!
