Vermont Grown Certified Organic Individual Clove Garlic Seed
We are sold out! Thanks for a great season. See you in 2021.
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 excel at growing 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. The 2020 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.
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.

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.
Orders will ship via UPS Air in 25 lb box increments. Customers will receive their orders in 1 to 3 days depending on location.
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.
