Garlic and lamb|
We live in Lincoln Township, Polk County, Iowa where we raise sheep, chickens, garden vegetables, and tree fruit. My first objective is to raise food for home use but I also market through Iowa Food Cooperative and do some direct marketing.
I grew up gardening and raising animals. I was a member of two different 4-H clubs where I raised dairy goats, swine, and completed wildlife and forestry projects.

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
I do not use synthetic fertilizers, insecticides, or herbicides (except to spray thistles-but not in my vegetable beds). I use a weed flamer, tillage, and an oats cover crop to reduce the weed pressure. I use the pharmaceuticals necessary to keep my animals healthy. I feed out my lambs on alfalfa/orchardgrass hay that I produce on my own land. I feed them a small amount of cracked corn or oats also.
I have been marketing lamb, eggs, sweet potatoes, peaches, pears, and potatoes in the recent past. I am producing German Extra Hardy garlic and lamb for the sixth season in 2015.

New crop 2016 German Extra Hardy garlic
50 bulbs available. Order number of bulbs.
Buy as many bulbs as you like for $1.50/bulb. This garlic is nearly cured but you can continue curing by hanging it to dry or you can use it as it is. I have been using it fresh in stir-fry and other dishes. I also eat it raw in sandwiches (thatís not for everyone, I know!).
I grow my garlic without any chemical inputs on my farm in Lincoln Township, Polk County. I planted this crop last October and then mulched it for the winter. It emerged from the mulched beds in March and we harvested in late June. Enjoy the nutritional and health benefits of locally-produced garlic.
