At Crooked Clove Garlic Farm we grow our garlic the old-fashioned way; No chemicals added. Ever. We are currently navigating the application process to be a Certified Naturally Grown producer. It’s our belief that you are what you eat and for that reason we go to great lengths to foster the soil in which our garlic is grown. Through heavy mulching and hard work we keep weeds down and moisture in. Eventually this mulch is incorporated back into the soil, boosting its organic content and improving its texture and ability to hold water. We plant cover crops to fix nitrogen and till minimally to further build up the soil. We naturally suppress the likelihood of disease through crop rotation and clever use of other beneficial plant species when planting cover crops. All this to ensure that our naturally grown garlic is both safe for you and your family, but also to grow better garlic with every passing year. If we wouldn’t feed it to our kids, we wouldn’t sell it to you, and we love our kids! Our garlic is full of antioxidants and rich in Allicin, a compound found in garlic with many known health benefits, including lowering cholesterol, boosting the immune system and helping prevent heart disease. Not only is our garlic delicious, it is truly good for you!
