Every stage of the processing of our garlic from the planting, harvesting, packaging and shipping is done carefully by hand to guarantee its quality. Every process is tended by hand from separating the garlic seed cloves, planting each individual clove, mulching, weeding and cutting the scapes. When it is harvest time, the bulbs are removed by hand, tied in bundles and hung in the barn to dry and cure. After curing, the bulbs are individually cleaned, trimmed and sorted by hand. Each order is then personally processed and packaged for shipment.
