Elephant Garlic Bulbs On Sale-Mountain Grown, Reasonably Sized

Sold Out-thanks for supporting Our Tiny Farm
Every year when we grow Elephant Garlic we grade out the bulbs that are about the same size as our German White bulbs and package them separately. We refer to these as "reasonably sized" Elephant Garlic. This is excellent Elephant Garlic with well-formed, firm bulbs that are about 2 inches in diameter. We sell it as eating garlic but we are also using it as planting garlic. We currently have four boxes of "reasonably sized" Elephant Garlic left. Each box contains at least 4 pounds and 28 bulbs. We will ship this directly to you via Priority Mail. Just click on the appropriate "Add to Cart" button on the right (If you are on your smartphone and don't see any Paypal buttons to your right, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "View Web Version").

These garlic were grown on our small family farm in the Blue Ridge mountains of western North Carolina. We grow all our produce using only practices and products in accordance with the USDA National Organic Program. No pesticides, fungicides, or herbicides were used to grow these garlic. We carefully rotate our crops every year, fertilize with well-aged manure from our animals and homemade compost tea, and weed with hands and hoes. We hand-pull the garlic in late June and dry it on racks in our open air sheds. It is then trimmed, cleaned, and packed for shipping. It was an excellent garlic year for us and this is all we have left of our 2015 'Elephant Garlic' crop.
