Neal and April:



The 2023 Crop

About Us

Garlic and Produce

Call Us !


April 2023: The garlic is growing and looking great!  Neal checks on it every few days.  The next weeks of warm weather are sure to help with our crop for this year.  I will post prices as soon as we start harvesting, but feel free to call Neal to place your order now.

We have been growing garlic since 1993 and are proud that our garlic has become known for its hardiness and taste.  Stan has passed along his knowledge of growing the best garlic in the Northeast.  Neal, April, and their family are continuing to grow amazing produce.

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.


It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Stan Erkson.  He has taught us so much and we are keeping the dream alive as we continue in the garlic business. 

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 were Stan's specialty and he trained the younger generations to continue to provide excellent quality and service.  Shallots will be added after Neal retires from the Post Office, but we will continue to produce outstanding garlic for you.
