Garlic is not only one of the most evocative and flavoursome of vegetables, it's also the destination allium for its health benefits. It has been known for centuries that garlic can help with a multitude of ailments from the common cold to managing high cholesterol. Of course many people use garlic supplements but there's no substitute for the real thing and of course it adds the most wonderful flavour to all manner of savoury dishes.
We supply garlic in a variety of forms. Standard loose or netted packs, conventional or organic, as well as garlic grappes, a 250g string of garlic which is hand plaited in Spain. We have also grown garlic on our own farm with varying degrees of success. Unfortunately Lincolnshire's climate doesn't lend itself to particularly well to high quality garlic production but we keep trying! We have also supplied more exotic types of garlic in the past. These range from solo garlic, a singe clove bulb originating from China, garlic scapes, which are the fresh flower head stem formed when the garlic is growing, and smoked garlic.
Our garlic predominantly comes from Spain where the climate is best suited to produce the best quality. Like onions, garlic is harvested once a year and stored in cold stores for the rest of the year. The new season starts in July and runs through until the spring or early summer depending on the harvest quality. We sometimes have to substitute the last summer crop with Argentinian product to maintain the quality supply.

Garlic, like onions are best stored in a cool dry place. For the majority of the season it will store for weeks without any deterioration in quality but towards the start of the summer you may see a green shoot starting to appear which is the bulb trying to regrow. This shoot can taste bitter so it is best to discard it before cooking.
