Garlic at Stearns Farm

Garlic is one of the few crops at Stearns Farm that is overwintered.  Unlike most crops, which are sown or planted in the spring and harvest during the summer or fall, garlic is planted in the October and harvested in July.  Planting and harvesting the garlic crop are big jobs, and we always have a big crew of sharers to help.
