The Minnesota Premium Garlic Project will enhance profitability for existing and
new farmers by improving premium garlic production in Minnesota through the advancement of best production and marketing practices, and by expanding markets and supply chains and conducting research on improved cultivation methods.
Project duration: November, 2017 – April, 2020
This project is made possible by a Specialty Crops Block Grant through the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.
How Can YOU be involved? Take the Garlic Growers Survey to get started!
- We are looking for four Collaborating Farms to conduct the research components of this project.
- We need 30 Partner Farms to participate in tracking statistics on planting, harvesting and sales.
