Call Us !


Stan and Adeline Erkson, along with son Neal (April) and grandchildren, Vanessa and Colin, have been farming for more than 40 years.  Garlic and shallots are Stan's specialty and he is training the younger generations to continue to provide excellent quality and service.

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 and have become a favorite of our clients.

Visit Products for information on the varieties of garlic and shallots 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 and shallots 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.


7/13/17: We are just about ready to harvest!  The weather has been wet and mild this spring-early summer, so the garlic bulbs are looking nice and big!  We will keep you posted as we bring in this season's crop - expect deliveries to start shipping mid-August
