How and When We Deliver:

In fairness to all of our fabulous customers, we ship all orders in the order that they are received. All orders will be shipped beginning in mid September and are spread out through October. Please place your order before July for a September delivery date. If you order after August 1st, your garlic will ship in October. If you are a northern customer, please place your order before June 1st to ensure early delivery. The sooner your order is placed, the sooner your garlic is shipped and the larger the bulbs will be. So please  don’t delay, order before June.

Return to Sender – “Address unknown” and “Undeliverable”.
If a package returns to us marked “Return to sender” it will be the customers responsibility to pay for the additional shipping to resend the package. You may opt to get a refund, but that refund will have the shipping and PayPal or credit card fee subtracted as well as $3.00 for postage and handling to mail a check.
If the status of the parcel is classified as or is marked “Undeliverable”, it will not be our responsibility to replace it. Undeliverable packages will be the customers responsibility.
If you enter a PO Box as well as a physical address, and the package gets returned to us, you (the recipient) are responsible for the additional shipping charge.
If we email you and tell you that your address does not work in our shipping program, it is your responsibility to give us an address that will work. We will hold onto your package until we get a correct address that works.
Please note: It is the customers responsibility to provide us with a working address. Thank you.
If you are an existing customer, and you have moved. Please make a note on your order that you have moved. We have thousands of customers and your address will automatically stay the same unless you let us know. We can not be responsible for garlic being sent to your old address unless you make a note of it. Thanks.

Because our garlic is grown organically without the use of herbicides or pesticides, harmless nano pathogens or pests may be present. All organically grown plants will host these microscopic cells and they are of no harm to humans. All plants contain these symptoms and garlic is no exception. We inspect our garlic thoroughly and do not intentionally sell any garlic that is tainted by any pathogens or pests. We do everything possible to ensure healthy soil: annual soil tests, adding the proper amendments, and rotating growing plots, and we meticulously inspect each bulb of garlic four to five times before it is packaged.

1st inspection is done in the field months and weeks before harvest: we (try to!) inspect every plant from the time it emerges from the soil, until it is harvested. 2nd at harvest time, 3rd when hanging in the barn curing, 4th when cleaning, 5th when packaging the garlic seed.
Healthy soil yields healthy garlic. But to make a 100% guarantee would be next to impossible. At planting time, we start all over again and carefully inspect each and every garlic clove to be planted.

We do not guarantee our garlic to be Certified Disease Free Garlic Planting Stock, or disease free. We do inspect our garlic under a keen eye and to the best of our knowledge it is superior seed stock. We do not sell any plant that we think could be contaminated, but sometimes even the keenest eye can be mistaken. Any and all liability from any circumstance is limited to a full refund of the garlic cost, excluding the shipping cost.

We take great pride in growing our organic garlic planting stock and we do not knowingly sell any garlic that may be sub-standard. We hand select all of our garlic for premium seed stock. If for any reason you think your garlic is defective, please call or email us stating the problem and return the defective garlic within 10 days and we will replace it, or issue a refund. We do our best to ensure your garlic seed is the best garlic seed we grow, but cannot be held responsible for damage during shipping. We can not replace garlic or refund money after the garlic has been planted in the ground. There are just too many variables with growing garlic. We send out a Hood River Garlic Planting Guide with every order and hope that our customers read it carefully and follow the instructions. However there is no way for us to know if the buyer took the proper steps. The most important steps to growing great garlic are as follows… #1 Have the soil tested. Garlic likes a neutral pH between 6 and 7. If your soil is too acidic, we recommend that you add lyme, and other soil ammendments. #2 Plant in raised beds. If there is a lot of water run off in your area, the garlic must be planted in raised beds. #3 Amend the soil, garlic likes loose loamy soil, add organic matter to the soil if your soil is not loose. #4 Planting depth. Plant accordingly for your zone: 2-3 inches for Southern climates and 4 to 4 1/2 inches for Northern climates. #5 Mulch your garlic beds. In cold winter climates a good bed of mulch is essential. #6 Make sure garlic gets the proper sunlight. #7 Irrigate garlic if you live in a warm Southern climate. We want you to be successful in growing garlic, so if you have any questions, please see the FAQ’s page and the Garlic Calendar. Or you may call or email your question. Thanks!
