We have welcomed many new customers, and are delighted to be given the opportunity to share the pleasures of growing hardneck garlic, with you!
What we see in supermarkets is generally one type of garlic - a white softneck, (and elephant garlic, which isn't really garlic, but rather a type of leek). Garlic lovers with a taste for something much, much better should try the hardneck garlic from the GroEat Farm. We hope you can enjoy the wonderful, rich tastes of our garlic.
THE “WOW” FACTOR
At GroEat Farm it’s our goal to make you happy —not only with our beautiful and flavorful hardneck garlic, but also with the thoughtful, over-the-top (and often unexpected) touches we’ve woven throughout each of our deliverables. Extra hardneck garlic, a kindful note, discounts on your next purchase. Our current customers often tell us it’s these extra touches they remember the most. GroEat Farm introduced the WOW Factor some 10 years ago and since then many have followed suit (and for that we are sincerely flattered!). As pioneers of the concept, we’re proud to know that our signature WOW moments, simply put, can’t be beat.
Vampires probably would not survive at the GroEat Farm - with all the hardneck garlic around! So many meals we create, begin with crushing, and chopping garlic. Onions are a close second, though I find the ingredient of garlic as simple and very versatile. No wonder it is used as a staple ingredient in so many other parts of the world.
Garlic (Allium sativum) is a species in the onion genus, Allium. Its close relatives include the onion, shallot, leek, chive, and Chinese onion. Garlic is native to Central Asia and northeastern Iran, and has long been a common seasoning worldwide, with a history of several thousand years of human consumption and use. Garlic is one of the oldest-known natural antibiotics, garlic has been used for centuries to treat bacterial, fungal, and parasitic infections. In scientific tests, garlic kills all kinds of pathogens, including well-known microbes like staph, E. Coli, and candida. And it seems that this benefit really does carry over to human subjects. Scientists found that a diluted garlic extract helped children infected with tapeworms recover more quickly. Another showed the benefits of a garlic-based mouthwash in killing the bacteria that cause cavities. Applied to the skin, garlic is quite an effective remedy for fungal skin infections like ringworm and athlete’s foot. Another study found that a 1% cream of ajoene (an extract of garlic) was actually even better for athlete’s foot than a 1% cream of a conventional antifungal. Diallyl trisulfide, a component of garlic oil, helps protect the heart during cardiac surgery and after a heart attack, researchers at Emory University School of Medicine found. They also believe diallyl trisulfide could be used as a treatment for heart failure. In another study, published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, scientists found that garlic oil may help protect diabetes patients from cardiomyopathy. At the end of the 4 months, the researchers concluded "...garlic extract supplementation improves blood lipid profile, strengthens blood antioxidant potential, and causes significant reductions in systolic and diastolic blood pressures. It also leads to a decrease in the level of oxidation product (MDA) in the blood samples, which demonstrates reduced oxidation reactions in the body."
Our Hardneck Garlic is available seasonally. Choose large, plump, firm, bulbs with the papery outer skin intact. Try a hardneck purple stripe or porcelain variety. Soft, shriveled or loose paper around the bulb are a good sign the garlic is not good. Store whole garlic bulbs in a cool, dark environment, away from moisture. Stored properly, hardneck bulbs will last about 4 to 5 months. On occasion, in early spring, we obtain large softneck garlic from another farm and make it available from our website.
Great quote: ''Alice's Restaurant Cookbook'' by Alice May Brock (Random House, 1969):
"...Tomatoes and oregano make it Italian; wine and tarragon make it French; sour cream makes it Russian; lemon and cinnamon make it Greek; soy sauce makes it Chinese; garlic makes it good..."
