Cornerstone Garlic Farm is a small family farm that specializes in garlic. We started in 1996 with a small crop of elephant garlic and expanded each year. For the 2013 season we have 11 varieties of garlic planted. We are one of a few farms in the southeast that offer seed garlic, braids and table stock garlic thru mail order and local sales.
We practice sustainable agriculture and though we are not certified organic we use organic practices. We believe that we should be good stewards of the land that God gave us.
We plant our garlic & shallots in Oct and Nov. By early spring we are ready to pull small garlic for green garlic. In May we have garlic scapes available .We harvest our garlic from mid May until late June and sell it fresh at the local market as well as cured for use all winter.
We started growing Shiitake Mushrooms in 2005 and continue to offer mushrooms in the spring and fall .Besides garlic, shallots and mushrooms we grow a wide variety of fresh vegetables, blackberries and herbs. One of our specialties is cherry tomatoes offering a Rainbow Mix of over 20 varieties ,of several shapes, colors and of course flavors. We crow a large variety of herbs including baby ginger and turmeric .Our produce is available at local markets from all year long.
We now pasture raise pigs and chickens and you can find our pork and eggs at our local markets.
Fresh homemade Garlic Powder is one of several value added products. We make 19 different rubs, dips and seasonings. Also we make flavored vinegars and Garlic Herb Dog Biscuits
