Producing Eastern Iowa's best organically grown heirloom garlic for over 20 years.


Garlic has been consumed by humans for thousands of years. Whether it is for medicinal purposes or for use as a food flavoring, garlic has a rich history.

You will be hard-pressed to find a spot on earth where garlic is not enjoyed. In Chinese cuisine, garlic is pickled in vinegar and served with dumplings to celebrate the new year. In Middle Eastern cooking, garlic is crushed with olive oil to create a garlic sauce called Toum. This sauce is paired with chicken and other meat dishes. In Europe, a lightly smoked garlic is often used as a stuffing for poultry and small game.

Garlic also has the unique distinction of being used medicinally for centuries. While the science is still out on the effectiveness of garlic as a treatment, it is commonly used to treat colds, inflammation and of course, to rid yourself of vampires. 


Garlic Storage

Store garlic in a cool, dark, dry place that is preferably below 60 degrees Fahrenheit. Never place in plastic bags. Keep in mind when you start breaking the bulb into cloves, that will shorten its storage time. We recommend avoiding refrigeration unless you will be freezing the garlic. Get to know your garlic – many softneck varieties will store for longer periods!
