About Our Garlic

Hardneck garlic is a seasonal product in the United States, which means small garlic farms, like Simply Garlic, have a limited supply available for delivery each year. Like most U.S. garlic farms, our bulbs are planted in  late September/ early October, harvested in July, and ready for delivery to you in September.

We pride ourselves on our naturally grown garlic that is bloat nematode free.  Our mission at Simply Garlic is to provide the best table garlic and garlic seed in the Adirondacks and Champlain Valley, using a combination of hard work, innovation and sustainable agriculture practices.
