(Hatfield,MA)LandMark Farm is the gourmet garlic specialty grower in the Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts. Owner and garlic lover Mark Stein grows 5 varieties of porcelains, rocamboles, and asiatics. These varieties provide you a choice of flavor for cooked and raw dishes. Only organic methods are used. No herbicides, insecticides, fungicides or petroleum based fertilizers are ever used. We keep our soil healthy and fertile with extensive use of cover crops, and added plant ,mineral, and animal based organic nutrients. Our 2010 crop is cured and ready to sell. An extremely dry growing season resulted in slightly smaller heads than usual, but with the same great flavor. We cure in a tobacco barn which provides perfect curing conditions with the hot dry air we had in the valley in late July. Eating garlic is priced at $9.00 per pound. For average 2" bulbs it works out to 10 - 12 head per pound. These heads have 3-5 large easy to peel cloves. They will store in good conditions for 6-12 months. It depends how close to the ideal of 50 degrees and 50% humidity with good air flow your storage area has. Planting stock is available for $12 per pound. Thanks for checking us out and we hope to contribute to your pungent breath. Your grower, Mark
