Ribbon Road Farm
Garlic for the table
This is a great way of enjoying our elephant garlic. Just pile whole cloves onto a water soaked cedar plank, add some olive oil and salt, cover with aluminum foil and roast @ 325 (medium) for 45-60 minutes. YUM!

Ribbon Road Garlic
An example of our Elephant and Hardneck Garlics
Ribbon Road Farm is a fifty acre family owned farm tucked in the gently rolling hills of western New York, where the winters are long and the garlic is hardy. We use strictly organic methods to grow our hand-cultivated garlic varieties, which grow big and strong on natural foods and spring-fed water. No harmful chemicals or imported diseases.
All of our garlic varieties are CERTIFIED ORGANIC by NOFA-NY.
Our Monster Roasting Elephant Garlic is milder than our Gourmet Hardneck Garlics, but our Western New York growing season pushes even these gentle giants well beyond mild.
So for those who want a bit more bite in each big bite, ours is the perfect choice. We know that garlic has many medicinal uses, but we just love to enjoy its many unique aromas and flavors and we hope you will too!!!
Well, all of our garlic is now out of the field and in our temperture & humidity controlled curing barn. It will be ready for trimming and shipping in about a month.
There is really no difference other than size between our Gourmet Certified Organic SEED garlic and our CULINARY garlic varieties. But we reserve our largest bulbs and cloves for you to plant. When growing your own organic garlic, size of the seed really does matter! Plant large cloves this year and harvest large bulbs next year.
Our seed sells quickly, so place your orders now to ensure we don't run out of your favorite variety. Last year was hectic and we sold out of most of our gourmet garlic seed by the end of September.
