2019 harvest was largely lessened by heavy rains during the fall of 2018 which caused late planting. We have replaced a large portion of seed garlic and our goal is to get back to our normal production and the results were a good 2020 harvest but not enough to sell online. Arcade Acres garlic farm will post the fall 2020 garlic planting in late October. These posting will indicate what amounts will be available in the spring/summer of 2021. As for the availability of shallots, that will will be posted in June of 2021. The dried garlic products in 4 ounce and 6 ounce containers will be available online this […]

We have added a few dried garlic products. We’ve taken the Northern and German Red hardneck garlic broken them down into individual cloves removed the skins put them through a commercial culinary slicer (2 mm thick). The fresh sliced garlic is then dried at a low temperature for 24 hours, then 4 ounces of dried garlic go into containers that are sealed with a heat shrink band to preserve freshness and to make it tamper proof. The granulated and powdered garlic is dried at a low temperature for 36 hours then separated into the course granulated garlic and then into a fine powder. Both the granulated and the powdered garlic […]
Culinary garlic is a term used for kitchen garlic. It can be used for seed garlic but I have used this garlic to sell at farmers markets as fresh garlic at a lower price compared to the larger number 1 seed garlic we have which is at $18.00 a pound. This garlic was given to me by people I have come in contact with over the years, I don’t know what type of hardneck or softneck garlic they are, so I keep planting them every year, then finally I gave them a names. For the softneck type, there is a small hamlet just north of my fields called Punkshire Corners, […]
Planting garlic does require soil preparation starting in the spring before the October planting.

Soil testing facilities are available online within your local area. Once your results are returned the required amenities will be listed and the amount. Add the […]
