Green Hills Farm Gippsland Garlic
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 garlic crop is currently being harvested. Subscribe to our seasonal newsletter to be the first to hear when it is available for purchase.
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.
