Garlic cloves, garlic bulbs, shallots, and fingerling potatoes

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.

February 2018:  The garlic is all planted for next year and we are eagerly awaiting warm spring weather.  Thank you to all who contacted us in 2017.  We are hopeful that Dad (Stan) will return this spring to enjoy telling us what needs to be done.  See you all next summer!

Some German White Garlic.  Most bulbs are 2" - 2.5" in diameter!  Wonderful crop this year!  The Saugerties Garlic Festival is September 30 - October 1.  We'll see you there!

The 2017 Crop

We grow GREAT Garlic and Shallots!

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.
