Sustainably grown garlic - healthy for people and the planet

Garlic is good for humans

It's a healthy, flavoursome mainstay of most great global cuisines. 
Our Gippsland garlic is both those things. It's also unbleached and unsprayed. 

Our current crop will be ready to harvest in December 2021. Subscribe to our seasonal newsletter to be the first to hear when it is available for purchase.

Sustainably Grown Garlic, Green Hills Farm

How do you like your garlic? 

There's a 95% chance that the gleaming white garlic you grab in the supermarket was industrially grown in China or elsewhere. 

Most likely, it's been:

  • irradiated to stop it sprouting

  • sprayed to extend its shelf life, possibly with Maleic Hydrazide, a banned product in Australia 

  • bleached of its natural, earthy colours 


Furthermore, at the end of its chemically controlled voyage to Australia, your imported garlic is fumigated. After that, it's shipped and cold-stored. 

How we like ours

Our unbleached garlic is: 

  • raised on rainwater, sunshine, and an occasional slurp of liquid seaweed

  • hand-harvested when the perfectly formed bulbs reach the right size

  • dried gently in a cool, breezy covered spot before being placed in 100% earth-friendly packaging and shipped to you

 

In short, our five varieties of Gippsland garlic are grown with loads of love and zero chemicals.
