Our farm family enjoys living in the country where we have the golden opportunity to grow healthy food. We hand planted our first crop of garlic in the fall of 2010. Our children are Shawn 17, Lanita 15, Linette 14, Sheldon 11 and Sherwin 10. We also custom graze cattle and have our own little sheep flock. Kevin enjoys seeing vast differences in land when we switch from being “garlic farmers” and “cattle ranchers” to soil farmers~ soil builders. We are always trying to improve the quality of our soil by increasing the microbial activity in the soil. Cocktail cropping, polycropping, and avoiding monocultures is the first vital step in combating disease in our crops. We monitor brix, soil conductivity, and maintain that garlic should NEVER be weed free for the overall health of the crop.
