Elephant Garlic World

North Plains, Oregon, United States

Love to eat? Then there’s a chance you probably love garlic too. Farmer Ken Haley is passionate about growing delicious garlic in a way that doesn’t harm the environment. All of his garlic bulbs are non-GMO and are grown without pesticides or artificial chemical fertilizers. The garlic harvest begins in early to mid-June; they cure inside a drying shed for a month or two before being cleaned off and ready for consumption. Haley rotates the garlic fields every year and uses cover crops to rebuild the soil after harvest. That way, he knows his land will be ready to nourish more garlic during the next growing season. Elephant garlic and purple striped garlic bulbs are available on the Elephant Garlic World Website. In high demand, supplies are limited, so customers are encouraged to get their orders in early! Home gardeners looking to grow their own garlic can also purchase seed stock selected from the farm’s garlic crop. Hoping to spread the joy of growing garlic, Haley is happy to guide growers along the way and provides some excellent DIY tips, available via email.
