Garlic Farm (I.O.W.) Ltd
The UK’s premier grower of garlic and source of all things garlic. Established by Colin and his family over 30 years ago, the passion for garlic and anything to do with garlic has become the driving force of Colin, his wife Jenny and their five children who are all involved in the business in different ways. “Isle of Wight garlic began in my mother's kitchen garden in the early 1970s. The hot summers of 1975 and '76 effortlessly produced quality garlic, bright and white, superior to the miserable imported garlic that was to be found on shop shelves around the country. “ Intrigued by the ancient origins of garlic and its wide range of culinary, health & mythical properties, Colin has developed the farm business and become certainly the UK’s if not Europe’s leading expert on garlic. This passion and expertise has grown a thriving food business providing the best range of garlic to eat, grow and learn about. The Garlic Farm has grown in prestige and reputation over the past 30 years, but perhaps the most significant growth has been in the last 5 years with the increasing awareness of whole and natural foods and the whole UK ‘foodie revolution’. The farm has been featured on TV, most famously in the Rick Stein series of Food Heroes, and James Martin whose enthusiasm for our garlic passion comes across loud and clear in his series ‘Delicious’ where he visited the farm.
