We are a small family run operation that focuses on growing garlic. We recently have expanded production to include naturally grown heirloom vegetables including eggplant, squash, cantaloupe, tomatoes and a wide variety of sweet and hot peppers. We hire no additional help and all of our labor is performed by family members and close friends. We specialize in garlic and have spent a great deal of time experimenting with different varieties that will grow well in the deep south. Our mild winters and short springs are not conducive for conventional garlic cultivation nor the traditional varieties offered by many northern growers. At Envie' Garlic we have identified several varieties of garlic which will produce consistently for the southern grower. Every one of our cloves are hand planted and harvested the same way to ensure the high quality of our garlic bulbs. We do not use any chemical products including insecticides or herbicides, all of our soil amendments and fertilizers are certified organic and that includes our cover crops and original seed stock. We practice sustainable agricultural methods to preserve the integrity and viability of our soil.
Our goal at Envie Garlic is to become a primary garlic seed producer for the southern garlic grower. We have experimented with over 70 varieties of garlic and have identified 15 varieties that consistently do well for us. It takes time to acclimate and to size up the garlic for suitable seed. We grow several varieties of turbans, artichokes, creoles and elephant garlic. At this time we have a limited amount of seed grade garlic available as well as food grade.
