The harvest is done!

We have finished harvesting our garlic. The weather was perfect this year. Our garlic is beautiful, larger and drier, so it will keep even better than in previous years. The garlic is currently hanging in the drying shed where it will slowly cure for 3 to 4 weeks. It will be available for sale before the end of August. Contact us at mayohillgarlic@gmail.com if you would like to reserve your garlic or if you have any question. There are many varieties to choose from – check the “Varieties 2018” tab!

Scapes are ready

We have been picking scapes over the last few days. They are tender and juicy…great for pestos, soups, salads, etc.

Anyone in the Ottawa-Gatineau region who would like to order some can contact us at mayohillgarlic@gmail.com (sorry scapes cannot be shipped).

Great 2018 season ahead!

The mild spring weather and occasional rains have given our garlic a good head start. We are now patiently waiting for the scapes to appear.

Our garlic is almost ready to harvest

All our varieties of garlic are looking very good and healthy, despite the very wet weather we have had in the last few weeks. We should be able to start harvesting starting on July 17.

We picked our scapes 3 weeks ago. We have still have some for sale. If you live in the Ottawa-Gatineau area come and buy your supply (they freeze really well and you can make delicious pesto with it) and visit our farm at the same time!
