Garlic Seed and Food Garlic
Welcome to John Boy Farms Garlic Store!
2017 Seed Garlic Available Starting Early August!
We grow and sell food garlic as well as GARLIC SEED for planting in Canada's cold climate growing zones. Our garlic is grown in Manitoba's Red River Valley located in western Canada's prairie region. The farm's unique climate and geography has cold zone 2 winters, hot summers and periodic wet/dry cycles. Growing garlic in these extreme conditions ensures strong selection pressure and adaptation of every garlic variety grown on our farm.
We specialize in growing Canadian heritage varieties, as well as many selections from around the world that have been adapted to grow here in Canada. Every year we expand the garlic varieties we are growing and continue to select the best garlic plants suited to our climate.
Garlic Seed Bulbs

Whether you're growing garlic in your back yard, for your market garden or on a commercial scale, our premium garlic seed is suitable for every size of garlic grower.
Having quality garlic seed is one of the most important keys to growing great garlic. It is always important to give your garlic crop the best chance at success from the start.
