About Our Garlic


Why Is Our Garlic So Special?

Though there are many companies that grow garlic, some big, some small and most have excellent garlic.  What makes our garlic special is how its grown and how the soil makes the garlic taste!


We believe our garlic is some of the most flavorful garlic in the world, as testified by our customers who come back year after year.

 

Here at Heritage Gourmet Garlic we are known for our fabulous flavored large bulb organic garlic!

 

The soil is our specialty.

We believe the main reason our garlic has so much flavor is the way we grow our garlic.  We amend our soil with hot un-aged manure that comes from grass fed animals, as opposed to corn or other modified or filler feeds


We believe, that even manure can hold remnants of chemicals that were fed to the animals that produce the manure.  The only amendments we use on our soil is wood chips and organic matter taken off our 40 acre farm, and composted yearly and added to the soil. 

In addition, we water with only natural  mountain run off. Our farm is located at about 3,500 ft elevation.  So no chemicals!  Our garlic is watered with only natural high mountain run off.  Sitting half way up the large Ksanka mountain range, so no water contamination.  This is something most people forget to think about when buying garlic.  Most of the big companies that grow garlic water with city or drainage water, which contains, who knows what?  Rest assured our garlic is completely natural, no pesticides or chemical fertilizers!

We use Bat Guano and manure tea to fertilize.  We do not use any synthetic fertilizer.  We grow 30,000 to 80,000 plants every year.

And finally, the manure!  Not only does it come from grass fed animals, but we amend with un-aged, VERY HOT manure.  Most garlic will not do well with this hot un-aged manure.  But over the years our special and lovingly babied garlic seed has acquired the ability to grow and grow BIG in this hot highly active soil.  We believe this is why everyone tells us they have never tasted such flavorful garlic.  THE SOIL!!!
