Growing Garlic with Suzi Sevcik 

Welcome to Sleepy Hollow Garlic! Some of the healthiest gourmet garlic grown in Northeast Wisconsin.
 

All of our garlic seed-stock came from certified organic sources. We grow our garlic using chemical-free, sustainable farming practices that are kind to the earth. We are in the process of transitioning the land into Certified Organic. We value our land and what it produces, it's important to us to improve the soil so we can grow the most nutrient dense, healthy garlic possible.

 

Great care is taken with our garlic through it's entire life cycle. In October, we crack the cloves, and plant it in carefully prepped, compost enriched soil. Then we heavily mulch it to ensure that it makes it through the harsh Wisconsin winters In Spring, we pull back some of the mulch to ensure the new garlic can peek through and then we keep it well weeded & watered throughout the growing season. It's then harvested in late July/early August & then hung for several weeks to be cured. Once it's cured, we clean it, remove the tops & roots & size them. 

 

We're always happy to answer any of your garlic growing questions & we encourage as many people as possible to grow your own garlic.
