I started growing herbs on a small community garden plot over 13 years ago. Four years ago I starting growing herbs on my farm in South West Pennsylvania. I specialize in growing garlic. My garlic is grown with absolutely NO herbicides or pesticides, not even organic ones! I plant my garlic by hand in the fall and weed my garlic by hand in the spring. I use only plant based organic fertilizers. I do not use any animal based fertilizers. I use cover crops to enhance the soil and control weeds. I try to be gentle on the soil because I feel a strong sense of reverence for the land and the organisms that live in the soil. I work hard to use farming methods that work towards that goal. I am fascinated by garlic and truly love my crop. Besides its' culinary delights, I view garlic as a true health food which should NOT be adulterated with herbicides or pesticides. More labor is involved in producing my garlic, but I feel it is worth it. I grow a variety of hardneck garlics known for their excellent raw taste. I have a Big heart for animals and I believe that having respect for the land and compassion for animals produces a very special garlic crop that is healthier for people.

My garlic can be purchased at a pick up location in College Park, Maryland or through mail order. I sell both hardneck and softneck varieties of garlic. Garlic will be available during the months of August, September, October and November. Call or e-mail me to place an order and set up a pick up time.

I also offer herb plants in the spring and summer and hand crafted herbal products such as lavender sachets, catnip pillows and calendula salve.
