Ordering Process

Online Garlic Orders

Regular garlic orders can be placed through our Online Store once the garlic is harvested and inventories have been counted in late summer. The ordering process is simple, secure and ensures your garlic is reserved for you immediately. This is the best option for most of our customers.

Our website will tell you if we are sold out of any varieties or sizes. Once your order is completed, you'll receive an order confirmation and be able to track your garlic after it has been shipped.

(Note: Pre-orders must be placed by email or phone)

Email or Phone

For large orders, we can take your information over by email or phone if needed. It is appreciated if you look over the cost of shipping, prices and varieties so that you are familiar before calling.  

Please understand that we get hundreds of inquiries and are often out doing farm work. It can take a day or two for us to get back to you. Your patience is appreciated!

We only ship to Canadian mailing addresses (Canada Post). We cannot ship to the United States or internationally due to import restrictions.

In fall we start shipping from early September until October (depending on harvest and drying schedule).

Later placed orders that require shipping after October 15th may have a risk of freezing depending on the weather and where the garlic is being shipped to in Canada.

Replacements, Returns and Refunds

Inspect When Received

We work hard to ensure our garlic is high quality and always want our customers to be satisfied with what they have ordered. Although small nicks, peeled wrappers and minor imperfections are normal, the garlic you receive should be in good overall condition. If you have mouldy cloves or damaged product when you receive it, notify us immediately (including a picture) within three days and we will either refund the cost or send you new bulbs (depending on availability).


If garlic bulbs are returned for any reason, they must be in original good condition and received by John Boy Farms within 15 days. A 25% restocking fee will be charged and all shipping costs are non-refundable. A refund of the remainder will be given. No orders can be returned and received by us after October 15th.

Terms Of Purchase

Due to the harsh nature of the Canadian climate and a large number of variables involved in growing agricultural crops, we only guarantee that the garlic you order will be in good condition when you receive it. John Boy Farms is not responsible for any damage or degradation that occurs once the garlic is received by the customer or the results of garlic grown from our seed. This includes (but is not limited to) damage during storage, cracking, planting or growing.
