Our garlic is grown without harmful chemicals and is fertilized with manure from our chickens and goats, as well as composted fish. Bunkhouse Acres’ employees receive a fair wage and share a sense of ownership in our process. So no, our garlic is not certified organic but it is ethically and responsibly grown by people who enjoy what they do.
Anywhere in the US except for Idaho.
We ship from Mid August to October. If you are not yet ready to plant, please store in a cool, dry place with plenty of airflow.
We plant garlic 6″ apart, 2″ deep in bands of eight plants. The bulbs need to be separated into cloves (not peeled) before planting. Place in the ground with the pointed side up. Mulch well to prevent weed competition. I use alfalfa but you can use plastic mulch, straw or a biodegradable fabric. Here is a good guide from WSU on growing garlic as a home gardener.
We plant between Halloween and Christmas, and harvest in July.
We are located in Elma, western Washington State.
