This past Wednesday, I met a friendly woman from the Crazy Horse Garlic Farm in Holland, Ohio at the Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market. She was selling spring garlic for $3 a bunch. Spring garlic is garlic that was started in the fall, and has now sprouted in the spring. It is pulled before it has time to form any bulbs. It is considered a culinary treat as it’s season is short lived.
Crazy Horse Garlic is a family owned farm, located to the west of Toledo, OH. They grow their garlic organically and tend to it by hand. They grow 10 different varieties of garlic, with names such as Spanish Roja and Cuban Purple. People don’t realize that there are different types of garlic, because you pretty much find the same thing in supermarket after supermarket.
