2024 TOUR INFO:

Most people want to pick or dig up food crops while they are here and they like to see plants growing and our drip irrigation systems. There is very little to see in spring or early summer. Please use the Contact button to start a discussion on scheduling a visit that will work for both of us. Please bring your preferred drinking water, picking buckets and transporting tubs, bags and boxes.

 

 

Thanks for your support!!

USA DELIVERIES ONLY.

 

TOURS WELCOME IN SEASON, PLEASE CHECK OUR

SCHEDULE FOR AVAILABILITY IN ADVANCE.

 

A garlic for every USDA Zone from 3-10 !

We will continue our ongoing testing of garlics, especially Creole type garlic as well as others. In 2024 and 2025 we hope to have many more new garlics and new crossbreeds.

 

We are sad to say that we heard that Dr. Buddenhagen had passed away in July (2022). He bred many food plants including garlic, creating new crossbreeds.

As a tribute to his hard work in that process, we will continue to

offer many of his garlics here so that he can be remembered.

 

We have offered for purchase for 2012 and going forward, new results from crossbreeding programs that use true seed (little black specks similar to onion seed) from fertile garlic flowers. All tested here in the cold. All non-GMO, no pesticides, no hormone treatments and all organically grown.

 

FOR 2024 THERE IS A WAITING LIST FOR EVERYTHING INCLUDING PICKING FRESH PRODUCE. FIRST COME FIRST SERVE.

 

 
Dry cured Wisconsin organically grown peanuts will be discontinued.
 
Dried Teamaker Hops (USDA-ARS release, low acid, highly aromatic) summer preorders available by special arrangement.
 
 
 
We grow what we sell and do not resell crops grown by others. Nor do we buy at the produce auction and tell others we grew it.
 
 
 
Blueberries, Raspberries, Black Currants, Grapes: pick your own fresh with a gallon pail or larger.
 
 
HAND WASHING STATION AVAILABLE.
PICKING APPOINTMENTS REQUIRED TO
ACHIEVE THE BEST RESULTS!!
