We grow GREAT Garlic!

Alpha Garlic Farm

The 2018 Crop

August 2018: The garlic is all in and drying!  We have had quite a few orders of the specialty garlics, so you need to call Neal for availability.  Stan is enjoying the work on trimming and sorting.  Orders will be shipped starting next week.  Looking forward to ​Saugerties on September 29th and 30th!

We have been growing garlic since 1993 and are proud that our garlic has become known for its hardiness and taste.  Shallots were added in 2010.  Due to family illness, we unfortunately do not have them this year.  Expect a return in 2019!

Visit Products for information on the varieties of garlic we offer.  We encourage home gardeners to visit the Home Gardener page for useful tips.  Make sure to click on Order for the BEST garlic for growing and eating.

We're proud that everything we sell is grown on our family farm in the beautiful Mohawk Valley of upstate New York.
