Greetings!

We bring you GARLIC, we bring you PRICING

Annnnnnnnnnnd…

Following the roller coaster of this first half of the year, we are excited to share some good news with all you garlic lovers…

2020 may not be the best crop we’ve had, but it is certainly ranking as one of the top five best crops over our 30+ year growing span.

Our new generation of garlic growers, production, and business employees are flourishing and finding their niches within the Allium Family! More and more everyday we are spreading our wings, growing and evolving into an operation that is truly exciting to be a part of. Reicza continues on as General Manager, with focus on the mapping & execution of protocols, food safety and system operations. Our office manager, Tamara, will be your point of contact for your orders this year! She excels in handling relations, accounting & administration for AHI. Eli is in the sales office, bringing fresh ideas and enthusiasm when it comes to growing our business. Travis has joined us all the way from Australia to help with growing, harvesting and farm maintenance know-how. Andrew leads and manages our production teams, logistics, & growing operations with an amazing drive & positivity. Lawrence, Rena & Caitee are working on our Garlic365 Program with great success in the greenhouse, growing green garlic and black garlic year-round. In the packing shed, Bikram, Gouri, the Susans’ and a host of other talented individuals are responsible for getting our garlic to you. Annnnnnnd… the garlic maven himself, Warren. He continues to remind us all everyday how much there is to learn about garlic, farming and what it means to work hard and be decent. A teacher in many senses of the word.

We would also like to give a shout out to our fellow growers Felix, Jeff, Norm, Ian and Nathan – an exceptional group to be working with!

Thank you very much for your patronage over these 30 + years!

Your confidence and re-orders have allowed us to build this business, which we are so incredibly proud of! We appreciate it!

We hope you are and continue to stay safe, healthy and positive during these confusing times.

  • Descriptions on each variety of Garlic available

Porcelain | Music (4-7 Cloves)

A very cold hardy plant, described as slightly spicy, with a porcelain fructose flavor. Here in “the idea of North” it is the most common, and essentially “The Staple” garlic variety. Easy to grow, it produces between 4 and 7 big-ass easy to peel cloves per bulb. Most years with shiny-white outer sheath and some pink to brown tinged clove skins, depending on the season.

Porcelain | Norquay (4-7 Cloves)

Big Boy – Big Gurrl Garlic, with regards to neck size, plant size and bulb size. 4-7 larger cloves with mostly one in the middle extra. White skin, lighter to a light rose clove wrapper, and the porcelain high fructose flavor profile, with all the winter ready attributes of porcelains. Matches the tune of Music in every way.

Marbled Purple Stripe | Svea (5-8 Cloves)

A contender for best discovery for sure. Strong hot garlic, 5-8 cloves often with lots of red to purple colour on skin and clove wrappers, depending on the winter. Lots of fat cloves like Music and Norquay. The “chunky tuna” of the porcelain world. Thrives in cold climates; a great choice for those in cold  winter areas. Easily produces on par with any porcelain.

Purple Stripe | Jachlo (8-12 Cloves)

Vigorous good sized robust intense purple bulbs, collected in Eastern Europe. Outer skins bursting with purple colour. The wrapped cloves retain the light chocolate – violet colouring of the outer wrappers. Flavour said to be fiery but with a mellow and smooth aftertaste. 8-12 cloves. Ready to rock through winter. Every year we grow a bit more! A contender for best yield.

Rocambole | Legacy (8-12 Cloves)

Generally, it is said to make lips quiver more than other hard necks. The bulb will produce 3-4 larger white skinned clove among the 8-12 on the bulb.
Depending on soil type a reddish brown, to purple brown clove skin underneath. Matures slightly at odds with porcelain, lower to the ground
squatter plant.

Tricks of the Trade & Wisdom From The Garlic Mavens:

  1. Make sure the cloves are hard and solid. Plant the individual cloves September or early October.
  2. Garlic likes sun and water.
  3. If possible plant in a raised bed of about 4 inches to give the bulb uncompacted soil, and to be above standing water should there be excessive rain.
  4. The cloves should be planted root plate end down, 2 inches deep in well-drained soil, with high organic matter.
  5. Spacing of 5 inches on at least one-foot rows allows adequate sunshine.
  6. Plant in lea of windbreaks or mulch. This lessens winterkill by inhibiting prevailing freezing winds.
  7. One inch of water a week until the scape or flower is harvested, and then no water would be the best scenario. (however, garlic is hearty)
  8. Harvest the scape or flower 10-14 days after it appears and use it to cook, cook, cook!
  9. Harvest bulb when plants leaves have died back by 35%.
    (approx. 3 weeks after scape removal) Bulbs will open if left too long. Dig from ground, hang and cure for at least one-week prior to use.

"I would like to thank all the team at August Harvest for assistance in providing advice on growing garlic, and the great quality products that you provide. Keep up the good work."
Paul Breau

"The garlic I buy from August’s Harvest is different from most of the garlic available in your local supermarkets. I buy a hard neck variety which they call “music” --- its taste is mellow and earthy, not sharp and bitter like the garlic from China. The cloves peel very easily, and are larger than most other garlics. After trying this a few years ago, it’s very hard to even think of using the “supermarket” garlic. And August’s Harvest garlic lasts for a full year. A very good essential and healthy ingredient in my cooking – and I’m supporting a local establishment."
