Program & Vision
Working to provide Canadian consumers with local products 365 days of the year.
Usage & Care
Store garlic in a cool, well-ventilate area. Do not store it in the refrigerator or below 10°C or it will sprout. In general, ideal setting is 13°C to 14°C; similar conditions of a good wine cellar. Nonetheless, garlic keeps rather well under a wide range of conditions, including ambient room temperature.
Allicin, responsible for the flavour and therapeutic benefits in garlic, is not present in whole garlic heads or cloves. It is created when enzymes and sulfur compounds collide through processes such as chopping, crushing, cutting and chewing the garlic.
Heat destroys allicin, but chopping or crushing garlic before heating creates rich, complex flavours. In numerous cuisines such as sauces, stews, curries, and stir-fries, chopping or crushing garlic and then cooking it in oil is a fundamental culinary building block. Chopping or crushing garlic generates aromatic flavours, and cooking it in oil enhances its character and helps distribute its flavours.
Green Garlic resembles a scallion, green onion or leek but yields an aromatic, delicate garlic flavour. We love it so much that getting to enjoy it only in the month of May, wasn’t good enough. So now we grow it year-round hydroponically.
Black Garlic is all the rage in the culinary industry. It has an extremely unique flavor with endless recipe possibilities.
Its sweet & savory taste holds undertones of balsamic, soy sauce & molasses, giving your bite a full and complex flavor.
Elephant Garlic Cloves
Elephant Garlic, believe or not, is actually classified as a leek!
Definitely a milder taste profile than traditional garlic. Elephant garlic has been associated with roasting forever because of its size and flavor.
