Welcome to Marvelous Roots Garlic Seed Farm
We grow and sell organic garlic seed, food garlic and shallots of high quality. It has been a successful year for our farm and we are excited about all of the positive feedback from our new customers. Our garlic is tucked away for the winter and we hopefully can look forward to a bigger crop next year. This year we offered 7 varieties of hardneck garlic seed, 1 softneck (Thermadrone) and 2 kinds of shallots. For 2014 we will have new varieties to offer. Check with us early to reserve your garlic, as we sell out fast.
We have always farmed organically and sustainably. We live on a working ranch that has been certified organic for over 20 years. My mother and father-in-law paved the way for my wife and I, making it easy to be organic and preserving clean food for generations. This is the first year we can actually advertise and sell “Organic Garlic Seed” online. All of our garlic seed, shallots and produce for market are grown right here on our farm, ensuring that you receive the highest quality possible. Due to our smaller size we have great customer service and quick turn-around times on our shipping and handling.
Organic Garlic Varieties
Organic gourmet garlic seed is made available to local stores, farmers markets, and online. Our nutrient dense soil and cold winters allow us to grow a nice selection of hardneck varieties. Now we are experimenting with different softnecks and are happy to see good results. Every year we should have new varieties available. Here’s what is available for 2013:
- Artichoke – Thermadrone
- Asiatic – Korean Hot

You can purchase these food varieties online, or at the La Grande and Baker City Farmers Markets. The largest and best quality bulbs are sold as seed in our online store. If you would like larger quantities of garlic seed please feel free to call or e-mail us. Our information is at the bottom of the page.
Around the Farm
We have been growing garlic since 2008. We started with a small amount, experimenting with crops that might do well in our high-desert environment. 30 pounds soon turned into 150. As our yield increased so did our passion for growing this amazing plant. This our first “real” year being able to offer garlic seed throughout the country. On August 20, 2013 the Idaho Dept. of Agriculture did an organic inspection of our farm. We recieved compliance and no issues of concern were observed at the time of inspection. All the hard work has paid off and are now happy to offer certified organic produce and garlic. Our customers can be assured that we offer products that are set to high standards.
