Health benefits of organically grown garlic
1. Garlic contains a beneficial compound called allicin known for its healing properties. Allicin only forms when garlic is crushed when it is raw. If you cook it before crushing it, then it won’t have the same health effects. Therefore, the best way to consume garlic is raw, or to crush and cut it and leave it out for a while before you add it to your recipes.
2. It is known to boost the function of the immune system.
3. Garlic is low in calories and very rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin B6 and Manganese. It also contains trace amounts of various other nutrients
4. A component in garlic is said to be beneficial in lowering blood pressure.
5. Garlic may lower Total and LDL cholesterol.
6. Garlic may help prevent common brain diseases like Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
7. If you have a bleeding disorder or are taking blood thinning medications, talk to your doctor before increasing your garlic consumption as it acts as an anticoagulant.
8. It may have beneficial effects on bone health in women.
9. Garlic may be beneficial in accelerating wound healing in minor wounds by acting as an antimicrobial.

Just received my order of Russian Red in SW Pennsylvania (10.1.2021) and boy are they beautiful! Ordered months ago, they delivered right before my planting time just as expected. The growing tips pamphlet and mesh bag were a great addition as well. I’m super happy with this order and am looking forward to getting these in the ground. Great product Mad River!
Ordered an assortment of different kinds of garlic to plant here on Long Island NY. Ordered them back in July. Came this week and planted next day. Reputable Farm. I Highly recommend for anyone interested in planting Garlic
Best looking garlic I have ever received. Biggest cloves. Can’t wait to see how the bulbs get. Very happy with my purchase and this vendor.
I was nervous to place my first order. But who could resist an organic garlic grower in my home state of O-H? I received my order today and it was a perfect box of carefully wrapped garlic starts. Great attention to detail in packing, excellent quality bulbs, and received in a timely fashion. Support these local organic farmers and you’ll be very satisfied, too!
Top notch customer service! I had an issue with my order, and Joanne promptly responded to my email and corrected the issue.
I have high hopes for a great garlic harvest next summer!
