Welcome to Hood River Garlic!

This page last updated on September 30th, 2022. If you live in the path of Hurricane Ian, please be safe and take care. We will hold your garlic until we receive an email from you saying it is okay to ship it.
We are pretty caught up with shipping and even ahead of schedule, so new orders may even get shipped by the second week of Oct. We are doing the best we can with only one person helping us ship – 1 day a week. If we can take inventory, we may load more varieties into the shopping cart on Sunday Oct 2nd, or Monday Oct 3rd. The varieties that we may still have in stock will be Chesnok Red, Persian Star and Turban Blossom. As well as some more Artichoke softnecks. We just have no time to take inventory until the majority of the (pre season) orders are shipped.
There are a few varieties in the shopping cart at this time, if you place an order now, it will ship in the third week of September. We are in the barn shipping garlic and there is no phone or computer there. See the chart below and it will tell you your ship date within a day or two. Please note! All orders are shipped in the order that they are received. All Organic Seed Garlic and Organic Culinary Garlic in the shopping cart now will be shipped starting in the 3rd week of October, 2022. Thank you.
This is our 20th (!!!) Anniversary being Certified Organic by the Oregon Tilth!

Specializing in certified organic 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 19th year being Certified Organic! All Hood River Garlic is grown in The Columbia River Gorge, from U.S.A. grown organic garlic seed stock.

Please note: Substitutions- Farming is very unpredictable. We do our best to provide premium quality organic seed garlic. We try to manage our inventory as best as possible, but sometimes there may be shortages of certain garlic varieties. If a shortage occurs we will have to make a substitution. We will make the substitution as close as possible to the original garlic variety ordered. If there is not a proper substitution, we will contact you with a selection of comparable varieties. Thank you for your understanding.

Please Note: All garlic seed ordered now will be shipped starting the first week of October, 2022. There is no garlic available for immediate shipping. If you order garlic from now through mid September and expect it to be shipped immediately, and then ask to cancel your order when you find out it will not ship until mid September, there will be a canceled order fee (please see refund page). Sorry for the cancel order fee, but we try to make it clear that there is no garlic available now. It is written in six different paragraphs and window boxes before you get to the variety that you choose to order, where it is also written in the Garlic Seed Description. Thank you.

Hood River Garlic – Organic Garlic Seed Stock

Here is a list of Hardneck and Softneck Organic Seed Garlic varieties that we grow here at Hood River Garlic. Due to shortages: all garlic varieties are not available every year. We do our best to provide as many cultivars as we can each year. Here at Hood River Garlic, we plant our organic garlic seed in the fall. We harvest garlic in late June through July. We cure garlic in the barn and begin cleaning garlic in August. We start shipping garlic in mid September and ship into October and sometimes November. We have started taking pre-season orders for the 2021 fall garlic planting season. Please note: Pre-season orders means if you order now, your garlic seed will be shipped in September (and into October) for the fall planting season. All orders placed now (May 5th, 2021) will be shipped starting the third week of September, 2021. All orders are shipped in the order that they are received, so if you live in the North and want an early ship date, please order before May. Some years we have Silverskin varieties for sale in the spring, but it sold out completely last year, so there is no garlic available for spring planting and immediate shipping. Again: there is no garlic available for the Spring 2021 planting season. All Hood River Garlic seed is Certified Organic by the Oregon Tilth.

Hi Terri
​I’ve ordered garlic before from your company and it is high quality, I was very pleased with what was sent. I like to try a wide variety to see what works best here, not only for growing but for storage.
Brian and Debbie in Dove Creek

Hi Terri! We love y’all’s garlic – the softnecks we get always grow quite well here. We had a very weird, early harvest season for the garlic here. It’s been very wet, so it grew really well very quickly. – I’m glad we’ve got a great company like Hood River to order from.  Thanks again!

Danelle in Miles

I am in love with all my garlic plants. My facebook friends are probably sick of hearing how much we have been enjoying our scape pesto. When I was getting slim on garlic scapes I also added radish leaves and horseradish leaves to help it go a long ways. We know the best still is yet to come, I look forward every year to grow my varieties and to buy a few more new ones from you.

Kate in Epsom

Up until today, we had no bare ground around our little piece of earth. Temps in the 60s made a difference and the world is awash with water. We loved the garlic we got from you. It produced very well with great quality, and we are looking forward to this years crop!
