Majestic Garlic from KMB Farms
AT KMB Farms we grow all our garlic in a natural and sustainable way as possible. Each clove is hand planted in soil that is free of pesticide, herbicides, fungicides and petroleum based fertilizers. We use compost sourced from local Horse farms, Manure is rich in sulfur compounds, providing the nutrients needed by the garlic to produce the allicin. Weed control is done with the use of a corn starch based plastic that is biodegradable. We use organic fertilizers and harvest by hand. The garlic is cured for 3 weeks, cleaned sorted and sold fresh.
