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. Stan did a great job with them, but Neal and April are still learning. We don't have shallots this year but hope to have them back next summer.
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.
August 2020: The extremely dry spring helped to keep the weeds down. We got some good rains at the right time and the garlic grew beautifully! Vanessa and Colin, along with some other friends and family members, helped Neal and April harvest it all and it is now drying well. Great crop for you this year!
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.
Some German White Garlic Scapes. One morning of picking - we were tired! The Saugerties Garlic Festival has been canceled this year. We look forward to the return in 2021
