Clarion speaks to the kind of soil on our farm, well-drained soil on uplands that formed in the glacial till–sediments left by glaciers settled over Iowa. It also has a more sentimental meaning; Jenn’s grandfather was born and raised in the small town of Clarion, Iowa on his family’s farm. After a World War II stint in the Navy, he was supposed to return to his hometown and farm for a living, but his parents’ health failed and the farm was sold. Naming our operation after his memory is a nod to the role he played in Jenn’s life and a connection with past Iowa/farming generations. Sage is an herb we all love; it is one of the first seedlings transplanted here when we arrived in August.

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
Not certified, but practice chemical-free growing standards. Seeds are largely open-pollinated; growing is done without synthetic inputs-- we use compost, hay, straw, fish emulsion, and the occasional OMRI-approved (organic) fertilizer.
In our farming endeavor, we heed the sage, or wisdom, of the past by using natural, low-impact methods of farming; methods that build up the soil, rather than deplete, by using seeds that have resulted from nature’s selection rather than the ‘technology’ of modern plant breeding, mulching to conserve water usage, and making fresh food available locally, opposed to food that travels a thousand miles.

Sprouted Grade B Delicious Garlic--Variety 'Music'
[OUT OF STOCK] 0 half pounds available.
Our favorite variety of garlic, priced to cook at a discount! Our Grade B garlic is the stuff that didn't make the first cut, and some of it is sprouting. Turns out? Sprouted garlic is actually a living 'super food' with higher antioxidant levels than unsprouted garlic. Give it a try!
Conventional garlic sold in stores has been treated with a growth inhibitor to keep it from sprouting. Ours is grown 'chemical-free' and is sprouting, to prove it.
Between the enhanced flavor and the boosted nutritional value, maybe you'll become a sprouted garlic convert!
Shown is a half pound. Due to its grade, an additional bulb will be included to make up for any cloves that are past their prime.
