Welcome to Dakota Garlic

hardneck_drawing_smallWe grow hardneck garlic and sell it direct to you.  Hardnecks – Rocambole, Porcelain and Purple Stripe – are the closest descendents to wild garlic. They are considered superior garlic, but are generally not grown on commercial scale.  You won’t find these at the supermarket [or even most farmers markets].

The links on this page will either take you to our order page or to other pages showing you how to cook and grow your own garlic using our seed stock.softneck_drawing_small
