Buying Our Garlic

As of October 31, 2017, we are SOLD OUT of garlic to ship. 

2017 Ann Arbor Area Locations: We are currently selling garlic and honey at the following locations:

  • Dixboro Farmers’ Market on the Village Green – Closed for 2017 – Thanks for a great year!)
  • Argus Farm Stop at 325 W. Liberty in Ann Arbor and also 1200 Packard in Ann Arbor – Indoor farmers’ markets – open daily with free parking. Garlic Sampler Bags, our book Get Going with Great Garlic, and bees’ wax lip balms are currently available at both Argus locations. Our honey is now available at the 1200 Packard Rd. location!!  Please ask where they are located in each store!)
  • Busch’s Fresh Food Market – at the Green and Plymouth Rd store in NE Ann Arbor.  Open daily with free parking.  Sold out – we have no more to bring them. 
  • Moonwinks Café – 5151 Plymouth Rd., Ann Arbor (in the small historic town of Dixboro, 2 miles east of Ann Arbor) – an exclusive bottling of our local honey is available to purchase daily.

Since 2010, we have easily sold everything we have grown at farmers’ markets,  retail stores, and to small food vendors in SE Michigan, most being within 12 miles of our farm.

We are your “deep local” certified organic farmers, focused on nourishing the health of our soil and our local community.

Seed Garlic – All of our garlic is both edible and plantable. Because our garlic is certified organic, none of the garlic has been dipped in bleach, sprayed or treated with synthetic fungicides to prevent sprouting, as is common with store-bought garlic.
  • 2017 – As of October 31, we are 100% sold out of garlic to ship. 
  • Our farm’s policy and practice is to save the best garlic harvested for our own seed stock to plant next year’s crop. Period. Simple. We don’t even eat any of ‘the best’ ourselves. We plant it all for you.
  • Our Garlic CSA members have had dedicated times in August ahead of all public sales to come purchase any of our garlic to plant in their own gardens or store for the winter once we have sorted and set aside our own seed stock (i.e., one of the perks of being a CSA member!).
  • Planting instructions are available on our website here.
  • Hint, Hint!! Our recommendation is to purchase your planting and/or winter eating garlic early during our marketing season, not waiting until the last week of September or October when many if not most of our varieties and large heads of garlic have already sold out.

 

Chefs, caterers, and local food producers who wish to purchase larger quantities of our garlic (or arrange for a private tasting of multiple garlic varieties at our farm before you purchase) should call Dick (734-649-1654, cell). We can arrange to have your order ready for pick up at a local farmers’ market, we can deliver to your kitchen (if it is a reasonable drive), or you may pick it up at our farm.

We do ask that our farm name, logo, and garlic variety be included on the label or menu board, as we love cross-marketing our win-win-win community collaborations, i.e., our #localfoodcommunity!

PS – We have even done “rush orders” in the past, but, understandably, we do need to charge an extra delivery fee for that service. 🙂

Our green garlic, garlic scapes, garlic, and/or our honey has been purchased by the following food establishments. Many thanks for supporting local farmers!

We love having discussions with area chefs and small food producers within our local community, one more way in which we are “nourishing the health of our local community”, which is our over-arching goal and both fun and rewarding for us.
