Garlic for Sale from the Mountains of Western North Carolina

SOLD OUT FOR THE SEASON
It is garlic season and Our Tiny Farm has beautiful garlic for sale! We have large German White (many bulbs are over 2 inches in diameter), Spanish Roja, and what our customers call "reasonably sized" Elephant Garlic (about 2 inches in diameter).

It was a great garlic growing year for us and the garlic is all healthy and firm. The garlic was grown in our market garden where we have followed the USDA National Organic Program standards for at least 13 years. 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.
Our on-line offer this year is for a box weighing between 4 and 4.5 lbs shipped priority mail for $58.00. This will include about 28 bulbs of the German White or Elephant Garlic and more of the Spanish Roja. To order, click on the Add to Cart button on the right (if you are using your tablet or smart phone and don't see any Add to Cart buttons, please scroll to the bottom of this page and click on "View web version" which is just above my picture)

This is a German White above and a "reasonably sized" Elephant Garlic below.
Our current inventory is:
SOLD OUT German White Garlic
SOLD OUT Elephant Garlic
SOLD OUT Spanish Roja
(there may be more available when we finish planting)

2015 Honey Crop is In-Available First at the Hendersonville Apple Festival!


SOLD OUT FOR THE SEASON
Glen has worked long and hard to rebuild our hives after losing most of them, several times, to colony collapse. But the hard work and persistence has paid off and we once again have enough of a crop to offer it for sale to the public.

Our first sales are today at the Apple Festival in Hendersonville. Look for
Glen representing Our Tiny Farm at the Henderson County Beekeepers Association booth. There you will also find a demonstration hive, bee suit, smoker, and sign-up sheet to get information about the next Bee School. Glen said the interest was high yesterday. Looks like we may have a whole new crop of beekeepers in 2016!
