Specializing in garlic seed for planting garlic in your own garden, Hood River Garlic is a certified organic garlic farm located in the beautiful Hood River Valley, Oregon, USA. We take great pride in growing garlic and strive to sell our customers the best organic garlic seed available. Dedicated to environmental sustainability we have always been organic and became Certified Organic by the Oregon Tilth in May, 2002. This is our 10th anniversary being Certified Organic! All Hood River Garlic is grown in The Columbia River Gorge, from U.S. garlic seed stock.
We offer organic Food Garlic to our customers as well as our organic seed garlic. For garlic grown in the U.S., from U.S. seed.
Visit the on line Hood River Garlic gift store. In addition to our Garlic Gifts, we have added a splendid selection of garlic accessories.
We are currently growing over 50 garlic varieties of gourmet hardneck and softneck garlic. Hood River Garlic's organic seed garlic is grown with care: from planting garlic to the premium garlic seed boxed up to send to our customers. We hand select our garlic planting stock, plant garlic by hand and mulch by hand. When springtime comes we do all weeding by hand, pop all garlic scapes by hand and harvest garlic by hand. After our garlic is cured, the bulbs are hand cleaned to ensure that the organic garlic seed we send you is perfect.
Please note, due to the increasingly huge popularity of growing garlic, we have brought on some organic garlic growers to help supply you with the best organic seed available. All of the garlic that we sell is grown either by us at Hood River Garlic, or across the valley on the east side of Hood River, or across the Columbia River, in Washington State. All garlic seed stock is still Oregon Tilth Certified Organic, or Certified Organic by the Washington State Department of Agriculture. Our friends in Washington have been growing organic garlic since before Eric ever tilled in our first field. We like to call them our "garlic mentors". They have been certified organic since April, 2002. Our friends in Hood River have been Oregon Tilth Certified Organic since 2010. You will continue to get the same excellent quality garlic that you have always received from us at Hood River Garlic, with even more garlic planting stock varieties to choose from. Thanks.
Our pledge to our customers:
We are proud of our organic seed garlic and organic food garlic. Our garlic seed stock is 100% USDA certified organic and U.S.A. grown. For our July, 2012 harvest we have added a few new varieties to our seed stock selection. See Garlic Planting Stock. These new varieties are USDA, Oregon Tilth Certified Organic, and certified organic by the Washington State Department of Agriculture and U.S. grown. We have a commitment to our customers and we will never plant any seed stock grown outside the U.S. or non-organic seed stock.
