Garlic Breath Farm

Our love for organic garlic, with it's sweet and firey flavor, is what inspired us to start growing this very popular veggie. Although we started our journey in 2015, we see our farm as being one of the first that people think of when they think organically grown garlic. We are very big supporters of local and small business. We envision our organically grown garlic in local farmer's markets, grocery, and restaurants in Elburn Illinois and surrounding towns!!
