Vermont Grown Certified Organic Individual Clove Garlic Seed
We are SOLD OUT FOR THE SEASON! See you next year!
Tired of spending hours splitting garlic bulbs into cloves before planting?
On average it takes a worker one hour to split 20 lb. of seed garlic into cloves. The fall is a busy time on the farm – spend your time planting instead of splitting! Our garlic seed comes already split into individual cloves.
We have a bumper crop of Music seed garlic. Music is a hardneck variety that is extremely high yielding and vigorous, and produces large, easy-to-peel cloves with terrific, complex flavor.
Our garlic seed is certified organic and tested free from garlic bloat nematode. This year’s crop was exceptionally healthy, vigorous, and uniform in the field. Planting time is fast approaching so get your order in soon!
There’s a lot of garlic seed out there. What makes ours different?
In addition to quality, organic seed, our garlic saves you time AND money. As garlic bulbs are split, the center core and stem is removed and much of the skin falls off. This causes an 8% reduction in the weight of the garlic. In other words, if you take 10 lb of whole garlic bulbs and split them, you’ll end up with 9.2 lb of separated cloves.
Only bulbs over 2 inches in diameter are available for sale. Our Music average 6 cloves per bulb. There are 35-45 cloves per lb. Not only do you save on the labor of splitting bulbs but you’re not buying skin and stem! Your money is buying top quality garlic seed and nothing else.

It’s best to receive your seed close to the time you will plant it. To pre-order, leave your anticipated ship date in the comments section as you checkout. Your garlic seed will be split a day or two before your ship date. Split garlic does not have as long a shelf life as whole bulbs and is best kept in a cooler if held more than a few days.
The splitting process causes some cloves to lose their skin and causes the occasional nick and scratch on a clove. In our experience this does not negatively affect clove germination or vigor.
