Although not officially certified as 'organic', we use naturally composted fertilizers and do not use pesticides. Each garlic shipment contains 3 lb (1.36 kg) of bulbs - approximately 18 to 20 depending on individual size. SHIPPING:  2018 garlic orders will ship by mid-August STORAGE: Store in a cool/dry location and the garlic will last throughout the winter.

We had been growing garlic for some years before going commercial in 1996. Twenty-two years later, we have a loyal (and growing) client base that includes ‘foodies’ and local produce retailers, plus, we enjoy associations with world-class chefs in Muskoka, Barrie, Toronto, and right here in the Grey-Bruce region of Ontario.

The variety we grow is ‘Music’. It has proven to be a solid and reliable cultivar that thrives in our seasonal extremes. It has a robust and tangy flavour, and after proper curing, trimming and cleaning, will last (stored in a cool/dry location) throughout the winter.

Fresh Ontario Garlic - Allium sativum, 'Music' variety (hard neck) - shipped in 3 lb (1.4kg) boxes - superior quality... specially cleaned, trimmed, cured and selected for FoodiePages - store in a cool / dry place -- will last the winter

The nutritional benefits of garlic have been known for millennia. GOOGLE 'garlic health benefits' for loads of history and research.

Store Policy

Advance orders will be taken next July for shipment in August 2019. As you may know, ‘seed garlic’ is planted in the fall. During the winter it sets a root system that can be 30 cm deep. The plants bolt through whatever snow there is left in April, and grow vigorously throughout May and June. Harvest occurs in July and three weeks are required to cure, trim and clean the bulbs for best storage. Our experience is that garlic ships very well. We use sturdy boxes that contain 3 lb (1.36 kg) of bulbs -- approximately 18 to 20 depending on individual size. Wednesday is shipping day. Orders and labels received from FoodiePages by Tuesday midnight will be filled, then shipped the next day.

I purchased 6lbs of this amazing garlic last year and it took me right through the winter and into early summer. The last head was just as fresh as the first so I had to order again this year and am not disappointed. In fact, I think this crop may even be better, if that`s possible.

I was thrilled at the quality of the garlic- the bulbs were perfect in shape, large cloves. On first cut, the aroma was perfect - slightly sweet and filled the kitchen. I switched my menu to a puttenesca to take advantage of the quality. Will be definitely ordering again!!

Fabulous garlic. I received it yesterday and have already used it in a tomato sauce. Beautiful big fat juicy bulbs. Very good value.
