Grand Gorge Garlic & Maple grows organic Garlic USDA Certified Organic and NOFA-NY Certified Organic and Maple Syrup from the Catskill Mountains of beautiful New York State!. The focus is on optimum soil, rich in organic matter, free of chemical fertilization. The six hard-neck varieties we grow are off the charts in flavor and bulb longevity.
The farm is located in Grand Gorge, NY at an elevation of 2000 feet above sea level. The remote mountain top knoll is isolated and pristine, and the high mountains that surround the farm provide the perfect essence to grow great garlic.
The fall garlic crop is planted in October to coincide with the new moon. Bitter cold and frigid biting winds that follow provide the ideal harsh conditions that garlic loves. The garlic beds easily experience sub-zero -30 degree ambient temperatures. A six inch layer of organic alfalfa straw is applied to stabilize soil temperatures during winter which also suppress weeds during the growing season.

– Sourced ONLY from our High Elevation Maple Trees!
– Wood Fired in highly efficient, stainless steel Evaporator!
– Bottled in Unique Italian Glass! No Plastic!
