Gourmet Garlic U-Pick opens Monday in Kelowna

Okanagan Gourmet Garlic U-Pick, B.C. and Canada’s first garlic u-pick farm, opens to the public for u-pick on Monday July 21.

 

“We are very excited to be able to offer B.C. and Canada’s first u-pick garlic farm,” said owner Bill Campbell. “We’re very happy to be part of the fruit and vegetable u-pick groups in the Okanagan.”

Okanagan Gourmet Garlic Farm, located on Granville Road off Longhill in Glenmore, has six varieties of gourmet garlic available for sale. “We have Italian and Yugoslavian garlic which are the softnecks and work very well when cooked or baked,” Campbell said. “We have Spanish Roja, German Red, Russian Red and Music which are hard necks and are very good when eaten raw in salads, dressing and products like pesto.”

Campbell said, “The u-pick garlic prices will be at least half of what you would buy gourmet garlic for at the Kelowna Farmers’ and Crafters’ Market or in the specialty grocery stores. We sell by the bulb at the market; however, u-pick garlic will be sold by the pound with a minimum of five lbs or about 30 to 35 bulbs.”

Hours for Okanagan Gourmet Garlic are Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9 am to 1 pm.

Other times by appointment by calling Bill at 250-808-7034. Full details including directions to the farm are at www.OkanaganGarlic.com
