Does size really matter? Well, in the world of garlic there are many perceptions that larger is better, but this is not the always the case. Mandy raises two varieties of garlic: Persian Star which is a heritage variety, traditionally with a smaller head and stronger flavor.
The second is our farm's own, newly-named Matthew's Zest which has characteristics of Russian Red. After 10 years of learning to grow garlic, Mandy has had a steep learning curve in the importance of tracking all the seed she has worked with. So, to identify all that has come into the Mandy’s garlic land, we have introduced a new name for an amazing tasting garlic. Hand-harvested, definitely heritage; Matthew’s Zest is one of the most flavorful heirloom garlics we offer. Approximately 6-9 cloves per bulb! Please note that if crop has smaller bulbs, Mandy will ensure that you receive the equivalent of a large bulb.

HOME-CURING YOUR GARLIC
For the safety and protection of your garlic, Mandy will ask you to receive your garlic right at the time of harvest and cure it at home. Garlic needs to be treated like an egg: if it bruises and cracks, it will not last as long and that is why we ask you to cure your batch at home as our space is limited.
