Hello Ben: I received this order yesterday and it is the BEST Garlic I ever had. I am wondering if you still have some stock and if you do, please ship me another 2lbs of this wonderful thing and charged against my credit card , Please let me know and thank you as always.
I was so happy with my last year's purchase, that I've emailed all my friends both last year and this year too. I hope you get more business from my rave reviews. I still have one large head left and it still hasn't dried out from last year. Love the wonderful taste of your garlic. Thanks again. Looking forward to receiving this years wonderful garlic.
And, BTW, we absolutely love your garlic...signing up for your subscription service was one of the best decisions ever. So happy to have found Allicin's Ranch 😊
Just wanted to share how I Love your garlic so much. Makes the best beet salad ...let me know if you want the recipe. It’s so yummy with your garlic...really makes the salad. Ciao
I’ll be devastated to not have a Bogatyr crop this season. It was my runaway performer this year and marked my graduation from growing mainly golf balls to a solid harvest of doorknobs. I was absolutely ecstatic popping them out of the ground. This season was a game changer and I will attribute it to your genetics and the exceptional quality and condition of your seed. For this reason I am loyal to your stock and will accept your recommendations for substitute varieties. If you do happen to have some Bogatyr stock amongst your ugly garlic supply, I’d also be interested in that. On the bright side, I will now be selecting some seed stock from this year’s harvest instead of eating everything. It will be interesting to see how they do the second year in my native soil. Thanks Ben for your personal service and all the joy you’ve brought to me. Take care to stay healthy and sane.
I just wanted to tell you I was extremely pleased with your seed garlic from last year!!! One lb yielded approximately 90 beautiful, decent sized heads (in 3.5 small raised beds). I will never buy garlic from anywhere else ever AGAIN! Keep up your most excellent work!! Thank you!!!
You guys rock! When do you guys think you'll have more of your garlic powder available? That was the best darn garlic powder I've ever had, period!
Howdy Ben - I got some of your purple glazer garlic seed last year and it was the BEST! We got a small farm and I have been buying garlic for some years off of reputable folks and their garlic was ok but after getting yours I was shocked.
Thank you, Ben and Claire, for creating your organic farm(s), and for really knowing your products. I had a magic VW bus in the late '60's and '70's; It was an awesome time to be alive, focused and rebellious.
Hi, just wanted to let you know I received and began using my new garlic - Music and Chesnok Red - and I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER!!! Incredible quality! Fantastic flavor! You guys are the best! I thought it would be nice to hear something truly positive for a change. I look forward to much pleasure using your products. Very best to you all!!
Received my METECHI today! Huge Seed Cloves! I am Very Happy! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
Hi Ben, I received the garlic powder and the Black Garlic, they are incredible, thanks !!!! Could I ask a question ? The garlic powder is more "moist" than powder I have purchased elsewhere, no problem, just wondering why. And could you give me alittle info. on the black garlic ? Just wondering why it's so different from anything I've ever seen. I've used your black in our morning smoothie, because I know it nutrient-packed, and I've used your powder on just about everything so far, and the aroma is fantastic. Just wanted to ask these questions so I know the product better, a larger order is to follow. Thank you so much, specialty products like yours are what makes my culinary world go round Ben !!
Great success with Metechi I purchased from you last year. Bulbs were nearly 2x larger than Metechi purchased from other sources in 2018 and the size differential came through in this year's harvest.
Hi there. The scapes are amazing! I have made two dishes with them. I did a basic potato salad and a green bean casserole. For the potato salad I used Yukon Gold. Boiled to soften, cooled, cut into pieces, added mayo, scapes, dill, a little of the brine, sprinkled with crunchy bacon, and VOILA! For the bean casserole I used fresh open market green beans. Parboiled them. Chopped some red onion and lightly fried in truffle oil, then added fresh mushroom sliced into fry pan, scapes, and dill. Tossed them and put them in a casserole adding Cream of Mushroom soup, baked, and at the end I added french fried onions over the top. I think I could just load toasted sourdough with melted cheese and scapes and bubble them up in the oven. I wonder if these would work with Pesto sauce, either in the sauce, or scattered on a naan bread pizza. Sounds yummy Oh my, scapes on grilled fish as aoli. Bacon tomato scape sandwich. The possibilities are endless. Thought you would enjoy reading how much I enjoy these. Thanks, have a great day
I just want to say thank you very much I just got braided garlic. The taste of those garlic are fenomenal. Not to strong just perfect. I use a lot garlic in my cooking and this is just perfect. We use a lot garlic in any possible way cooking, baking, with a honey and etc. thanks again and have a great and safe holiday. Best regards.
Hi there Ben & Claire. FYI....you two will love this !! Your Killarney Red from last year.....6 bulbs in hand & basement storage must be perfect. Broke em down this week & maybe lost 1 bulb total. Most cloves totally beautiful !! Some porcelains & purples from others didn't last this long. Good going ! Carry on well. regards, rick
Texas BlueBonnets, Romanian Red - Thought this pic was cool so I wanted to share, my Romanian red is coming up nicely after a watering along with some Texas blue bonnets in the back ground. Thanks for the quality garlic!
Best seed garlic with the widest variety anywhere. We always get great germination rates and a delicious harvest. If you want to grow your own garlic, start here.
Ben - I was at a farmers market in Colorado yesterday and your company was selling the garlic. The gal at the stand asked if my Dad and I would like to have a garlic sample and I thought garlic is garlic....but ok we had a sample. OMG was I wrong! Garlic is it not garlic! I’m half Italian and I must say....I’ve NEVER tasted garlic like yours! It is the most delicious garlic I have EVER had! Thank you for doing what you’re doing and we will be buying our garlic from you from now on! By the way, I bought the large garlic braid and it is so beautiful and adds that extra Italian touch to my kitchen! Thank you once again!
My friend and I shared some Hot Yugoslavian seed from you last fall. She harvested last week, and I harvested yesterday. Each glorious head was HUGE, bigger than the heads you send us for seed. We are delighted to have this wonderful garlic for our table this fall and winter. We are growing in upstate NY, at around 42.5 N.
I've been intending to send you an email complimenting you on the amazing garlic I ordered this fall. I was admiring it as I broke apart the cloves to soak before planting and while planting. The Bogatyr was huge and awesomely clean and blemish free. I'll order again next year along with other variety's if I don't snooze and miss the chance to order before they all sell out. Thanks again,
Likes: Customer Service, Quality, Selection, Wait Time Out of season everywhere else, Ben saved us.
Received my garlic order & very pleased as usual. Thanks Guys!!! Keep up the great work...
I received your garlic today. I have to say, from 3 different sources, yours are the best examples. Thank you. I will be a repeat customer.
Hi Ben, I received the garlic I ordered yesterday and it tastes wonderful. Thank you so much for doing what you do. Your garlic is so great!!
Thank you SO much for offering smaller portions. It's really letting me, as a small garden owner, try many varieties. Also, free shipping is amazing.
Your garlic is the best and biggest I've purchased in the 8 years I've been growing. I grow mostly porcelins so I'm excited to move into the purple stripes etc...
Good morning, I had purchased Hot Yugoslavian seed garlic from you about four years ago. It has done very well here in NE Ohio. The majority of the crop produces 2-3/4 -3" diam. heads; 2-1/2" would be considered small for this variety!
Ben, Thanks, can’t wait. Love the spring garlic. I stopped growing garlic after I tasted yours.
Just got my order today and I tried my very first bite ever of Nootka Rose. Not a shy retiring wallflower, is it? YUM! I like what you're doing and how you're doing so much that not only did I just order another pound of seed bogatyr, I also placed the first refrigerator magnet I've ever in my life placed right on my refrigerator as I loved the looks of it and like even more well what it represents. In my life is a l-o--o-o-g period of time, so please consider yourselves appropriately honored for your excellent work. This is game-changing for me. Naturally if I can drive an hour and have a fascinating visit with a garlic guru/passionate nut like Poul I'm in. Unfortunately, as I mentioned, his garlic has been so small for three years now that cooking with it has been a testament to what was and you knew that doing that garlic step with his garlic recently was going to be unnaturally laborious. So now I can support you with glee. I'm one person and don't often cook meals for more than one so if my orders seem a little small in comparison to my enthusiasm, that's the reason. You keep going, Ben-I will be watching. Best,
Good evening, Ben and Claire. Constance Smith here. I just wanted to thank you again for taking the time to deliver my order in person today. What a kind and gracious effort on your part. It was wonderful to meet the two of you in person! Wishing you all the best at our local street faires and during the rest of your journey home.
I love your garlic! Best garlic on the planet!!
The "seed" garlic I bought from you last fall (I was the one who got lost 3 times on the way to your farm!) is the most beautiful garlic (shallots, too!) I have ever grown. Thanks for the wonderful product!
Hi Ben, Woo Hoo! Got a beautiful braid from Isabelle’s farm store yesterday. Just in time; was using the last of our local garlic. Now I have enough until our harvests come in! You’re a great part of our local farm culture I think! Bummer that the snow was preceded by some wicked hail though. Did you know that that storm was the the biggest dump of our entire season? Crazy Colorado!
Hi, Great to hear from you! I just hung up your beautiful garlic braid on my wall. I'm so excited about it. I've just gotten into making sauerkraut and stuff so I think I'm gonna have a lot of use for large amts of garlic.
This is the second year I have ordered garlic from these nice folks. Great customer service with helpful advice, quality seed stock & such tasty garlic! Great job you guys!!! :~)
Oh Ben the garlic is amazing! The garlic press is the best thing too. Matthew loves it..... thank you thank you thank you hugs to Claire
The Garlic we bought yesterday from you in Carlsbad is out of this world--We made a fresh stew with it this morning!
I hope you’re having a great day, Ben. I just had to pass on this info. I took Friday 14th off to plant my garlic. I have scaled back a lot from a couple of years ago, but still plant a fair amount. Anyway, as I said, I took off the 14th to plant garlic and had just planted the very last clove of the material I had on hand when I heard the mailbox lid being shut by the postmistress. I went immediately to the mailbox and, BINGO!!!, there was the package from you. I took it downstairs to weigh and break the bulbs down and record clove numbers, etc. and then took it immediately to the garden to plant. THAT is what I call timing!! You must have mailed that order off as soon as it hit your computer. As per usual, you sent absolutely beautiful seed bulbs. The 1 lb. of Metechi was 4 beautiful bulbs which weighed in at 1.31 lb. total with the biggest one going well over 3 inches. The 1 lb. of Romanian Red weighed in at 1.28 lb. and, as with the Metechi, very nice sized bulbs, clean and picture-perfect. I really appreciate your consistently shipping nothing but top quality bulbs and the fact that you do not break them down before shipping. Top quality bulbs, speedy shipping, reasonable pricing and great service. You have a great combination which will bring back customers, Ben. Keep up the great work!! Thanks again, and have a really great day. Very best regards,
