THANK YOU TO ALL OUR WONDERFUL CUSTOMERS-
WE ARE SOLD OUT OF THE 2016 GARLIC AND SHALLOTSThis is all we have left of our 2016 garlic and shallot crop! So we are offering a super special sale on these five boxes of elephant garlic and Grey Griselle shallots. Please see the September 19th blog post for more pictures, a description of Grey Griselle shallots, and explanations of what I mean by "regular", "small", and "off-color" reasonably sized elephant garlic. I did some mixing and matching and stuffed as much as I could into these boxes. All the bulbs are firm and in good condition for eating or planting.
Referring to the picture above, the middle box and the one on the right have forty bulbs each and weigh between 4 and 5 pounds. They contain mostly the regular reasonably sized elephant garlic topped off with off-color and small bulbs. These are Box Q SOLD OUT in the right sidebar and sell for $30.00 which includes priority mail shipping. (If you don't see the right sidebar with the shopping cart buttons please scroll to the bottom of the page and click "view web version").
The box on the left contains 47 bulbs of the off-color and small elephant garlic bulbs. The box weighs about 4.5 pounds and is Box R SOLD OUT in the right sidebar. It sells for $25.00 which includes priority mail shipping.

*****Elephant Garlic, Reasonably Sized
Years ago, in response to our direct market customer requests, we began growing Elephant Garlic that was very similar in size to our German White Garlic. This remains popular with our direct market and online customers. The two photos below show our best Elephant Garlic, It is about 2 to 3 inches in diameter and there are about 8 to 9 bulbs in a pound. Box I SOLD OUT contains 29 bulbs and weighs about 3 pounds. Box J contains 23 bulbs and weighs about 3 pounds. They sell for $37.00 + $7.50 priority mail shipping for a total of $44.50 each.
SOLD OUT contains 35 bulbs and weighs about 4 pounds. It sells for $38.00 + $7.50 priority mail shipping for a total of $45.50.
These are not your everyday shallots! These shallots have so much flavor! No wonder chefs love them so much. They are a bit pricey, which is why you should grow some of your own!The shallots have been cleaned off but not washed. We have learned that they store much longer that way. We are offering two sizes of Grey Griselle Shallots. The two photos below show the Medium to Large Shallots. These are good for eating or planting. We prefer to use them for eating because it is easier to peel a few large shallots than a bunch of little ones. Box O SOLD OUT has the medium to large shallots. Each box has 28 to 30 shallots and weighs about 8 oz. It sells for $13.50 + $6.80 priority mail shipping for a total of $20.30.
Mountain Wildflower Honey
Our family, friends, and customers love our wildflower honey. The flavor is excellent and you can be assured that it is all pure honey. We can't control where our bees forage for food, but our farm is surrounded by woods and pastures full of clover and wildflowers. We are offering two sizes this year. A one pound plastic squeeze bottle and a half pound glass screw top jar. We can ship four one pound bottles in a box (so one shipping charge) or up to six half pound jars. The one pound bottle sells for $11.00 + $7.50 priority mail shipping for a total of $18.50. Two bottles would cost $29.50, three bottles $40.50, and four bottles $51.50. The half pound jar sells for $7.00 + $7.50 priority mail shipping for a total of $14.50. Two bottles would cost $21.50, three bottles $28.50, four bottles $35.50, five bottles $42.50, and six bottles $49.50.

SOLD OUT FOR THE 2016 SEASONHave you ever cooked with shallots? If not, you are in for a treat. If you have only used the common supermarket variety of shallots, you are in for a treat, too. We have the heirloom variety "Grey Griselle" available for sale. These are very different from the standard shallot. As you can see in the picture, they are tear-drop shaped and rather gray-brown-orange in color. They have a delightful, rich, distinctive flavor. They are wonderful sauteed in butter with vegetables, cooked in sauces to serve over meat, tossed in a salad, or chopped fine and put in a vinaigrette. We learned long ago that this is the kind of shallot that many chefs like to use and we can understand why.
We obtained our original planting stock many years ago and save and plant our own each fall. We are offering two sizes of shallots for sale. Medium to large is one category and small is the other. We cook with the medium to large ones because it is quicker and easier to peel the them. We plant the small ones. We have not seen any difference in the size of the bulbs produced the next year whether we plant small ones or large ones. My hubby actually said that he was going to do a test on that this year! Of course, you can plant or eat any of them.
