Lorz Italian garlic
The Lorz Italian Garlic is an heirloom variety from the northwestern part of the US, with a very strong flavor. The Lorz family brought this plant to Washington State's Columbia River Basin in the early 1900s from their home in Italy. Lorz garlic thrives in hot summers, when it grows into garlic with a very bold flavor. The bulb can have anywhere from two to eighteen cream-colored cloves, which are contained within its purple-colored bulb and its thick wrappers. Generally harvested in the mid-season, the Lorz Italian garlic stores well for six to eight months.

Currently we offer eggs from chickens that are raised on grass and fed a mixture of whole grains and seeds, with a few supplements such as aragonite and kelp. Many of the grains and seeds (for example, wheat and flax seeds) are USDA certified organic. (more...)
