Fred and Chris have specialized in growing garlic for the past 14 years. We both have degrees in Environmental Science and Biology and we understand need and social responsibility of sustainable farming. With our science backgrounds we have been able to develop a healthy organic garlic business. Our soils have been developed and maintained by multiple organic methods from composting to a diversification nitrogen fixing cover crops. We are organically certified by OEFFA.and USDA. We are vendors at the Cleveland Garlic Festival which is put on by the North Union Farmers Market in Cleveland. We have been growing organic crops on our property since 1991 and prior to that we owned a farm in central Ohio. We have over 30 years of growing organic crops. We began specializing in organic garlic in 2000. We have worked over the past twelve years to increase our personal garlic production. This means the garlic you purchase has been developed in our ground for many years. This practice minimizes the chance of carryover contamination from any other grower. We sell 11 different varieties of garlic including Heirlooms, hard and soft neck. We are tracking over a 98% yield on our crops. Our garlic will last up to 8 months when stored properly. We also have three varieties we are developing and will not sell for a few more years. Since we are organic and chemical free growers we have proof of any and all fertilization process for your inspection.
Our garlic can be purchased by appointment out of our barn. You can also purchase our garlic at The Hudson Farmers market which runs every Saturday from June 7th through October 11th from 9:00am to 12:30 on the Hudson Green. Feel free to contact us for any other sales times.

This event, sponsored by Thaxton's Organic Garlic Farm and Hudson's Restaurant, was memorable from start to finish. Everything about the event, from the 5-course meal prepared lovingly by Kevin and JJ Altomare with over 10 local farmers/vendors featured to the folksy music of Clay & Katy was top notch.... [more]
