Some German White Garlic Scapes. One morning of picking - we were tired! The Saugerties Garlic Festival is September 29 - 30. Visit us at Booth B38 - we'll see you there!
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.
Garlic cloves, garlic bulbs, and potatoes
October 2018: We sold out quickly this year and are now preparing to plant. Stan has enjoyed being home to help, but says it's getting too cold for him now. Adeline is ready for the pools down in Florida as well! Thank you to all that supported us. We sold so much garlic that we just didn't have enough to take to Saugerties. We will be back next year!
