Welcome to Snoetic Garlic Farm!
2015 has been one of unprecedented drought following a winter of below average snowfall in our pocket of central western Manitoba. From April 1st to July 1st we received approximately 1.5inches of rain, much less than our usual range of 8 to 12inches for the same period. Despite irrigation, we are anticipating a smaller harvest with reduced bulb-size. Some classes of garlic were more affected than others.
This challenging season in combination with new upcoming changes to our website has led us to the decision to not activate the online shopping cart in 2015, but rather to take orders directly via telephone and email.
We will begin taking orders on Wednesday August 19th at 10am CST. Variety availability will be posted closer to this date.
Snoetic Farm specializes in growing and selling heritage and gourmet garlic varieties for both seed and culinary purposes.
A Diverse Collection of Prairie-Adapted
We are a small family-owned and family-run endeavour. Snoetic aims to produce a quality supply of diverse and Prairie-adapted garlic cultivars. We have been growing garlic since 2007 having started out with a handful of Persian Star and a whole lot of bulbils. In time, our crop developed and we expanded; we now have a diverse collection of varieties that are well-adapted to our prairie climate and continue to add to our collection each year.
We primarily grow seed garlic. Our seed garlic is carefully grown and selected for quality. Bulbs are a minimum of 2 inches in diameter (for most varieties) with the largest bulbs allocated to the first orders. Bulbils are also available for bolting varieties. Our kitchen garlic is comprised of bulbs that are not suitable or ideal for use as seed. They are either a smaller grade, unsorted variety or irregularly shaped bulbs. Kitchen garlic is sold fresh by the bulb or pound at our local farmers’ markets or dehydrated as powder or granules.
You can review and order our seed and kitchen garlic through our online shopping cart. Traditional methods of order are also available, and we are happy to assist you over the phone with ordering and other information ~ please contact us.
