Excellent garlic and seed potato supplier. Their seed garlic is excellent quality and has consistently exceeded my expectations in yield and quality. The seed potatoes are just as good. One piece of advice is to order early, they do tend to run out of some of their more popular varieties.

First year using this company. I was looking for a company that specializes in only a few products. I found this company and they only did garlic, potatoes and shallots. I order both garlic and shallots. The order arrived in a very timely manner and the product was A+++. Cloves were all complete with nice sized heads. All product was planted this fall with hopes to see them all next spring.

I have ordered from Filaree Garlic several times now. They have a nice website, and the seed garlic I've received is always gorgeous and plump, nicer than other places I've ordered. No disease problems, and vigorous plants. I recommend Filaree when people ask me where to buy seed garlic.

Gorgeous garlic heads! Plump and healthy cloves. I've just placed my 2nd order with them.

Thank you for your response. I am updating my review as everything else regarding this order was stellar. As I stated above, all of the bulbs that I received were large and plump - and this was the end of the season. I have ordered garlic multiple times in the past from other vendors and Filaree's garlic is by far the best quality that I have ever received. Again, thank you for clearing up the matter of the one cultivar- it is much appreciated!

I placed an order with Filaree at the end of summer. I ordered two specific varieties (out of many, many interesting choices!) and a pack of 4. One of the 4 pack was a variety that I had selected. I called the company, talked to an actual person, and recieved a new variety two days later. No hassle, just apologies. And for ordering so late in the season, I was amazed at how huge the bulbs I recieved were. I will definately be ordering from them in the future!

Fantastic selection, service and value...they were really nice about combining a couple different orders to save on shipping, and checked on substitutions. The garden packs are a really good deal and have performed very well overall in my maritime northwest garden.

A great selection. They held my order until the time I requested, then sent them promptly. The garlic heads were large and firm. I am now getting ready to plant them (and give away some of the extra cloves).

If I could give a better rating than 'positive' I would for Filaree Farms. We started purchasing garlic from Filaree in 1995 while still living in the Boston area. As newbies we received advice and help from owner, Tom C, who, to this day, still takes the time to personally answer an email.

Ever since reading Chester Aaron's book Garlic is Life, I've been unable to buy or cook with store bought garlic. Filaree solves this problem for me!!!! My order -- just three types, and just 1/4 pound each -- came promptly and the cloves look just beautiful. Tomorrow they will go in the ground: Red Toch (Aaron's favorite), China Stripe and Nootka Rose. Now to try to figure out how to survive until they are ready to harvest and eat....

I have planted Filaree garlic in the Herb Garden at Kanapaha Botanical Gardens for the last two years and have just placed this year's order for Fall planting. The selection is extensive and their cloves are of high quality. Their response to emails is quick and friendly and their customer service overall is great. The website and catalog are full of information. I highly recommend this nursery.

I live about 2 hours south of Filaree Farm and purchased garlic seed from them last year for the first time. The person I spoke with was friendly and helpful. Being a first time garlic grower, and not knowing about the varieties I asked him to send me a mix of his favorite eight varieties. Success with every variety! I'll be harvesting in a couple of weeks. Also, everything is USDA Organic.

I have purchased garlic from Filaree Farm for the past two planting seasons (2007 - 2008) and I have to say that I am pleased with the quality of the seed garlic I have received and the numerous varieties available. I received my garlic at the time I requested and I have had great success in growing it using the instructions provided.

I have ordered my garlic from this company for the past 3 years and have had excellent experience with them. They carry an amazing number of varieties & their catalog is a wonderful source of information on the taste of each kind, how to grow it and how long you can store it. They also continually add new varieties & their stock is large and healthy.

This is a great source of garlic! Lots of variety and they really put thought in their responses to my questions.

I have had repeatedly wonderful service and received great garlics for planting in my home garden. I have been buying from Filaree for a number of years. This year was no exception--my garlic is beautiful, tasty and just as advertised by the good folks at Filaree. My garlics travel from Washington State to the coast of Virginia--I've never lost a clove and the harvest has always been great!

I've been ordering from Fillaree Farms for about four or five years. I really like their products, great variety, competitive prices, great information, and customer service. Their catalog contains a wealth of information on garlic types, has been a major source of my knowledge on garlic and I keep catalogs as a continuing reference document. I always make them my top recommendation to friends interested in growing garlic.

I was impressed with the quick and helpful email responses to my questions from Tom of Filaree Farm. Tom helped me select garlic that would have the best chance of success for my tropical climate. He also invited me to provide feedback as I grow them, which shows me he cares about and keeps track of how his products perform for his customers in different locations. Tom's excellent customer service, patience, and helpfulness to a newbie garlic grower convinced me to order from his company, and if I am successful at growing them, I definitely will be ordering from this company again.

I have nothing but good things to say about Filaree Farm. They promptly and very courteously responded to my inquiries and even indicated a willingness to include choices more to my liking in a variety pack of seed garlic. That says alot considering I am a very small purchaser. Thanks!

I planted 7 types of garlic last fall from Filaree 10 days ago I pulled my first, Chet's Italian (great taste.) Today I pulled Killarney Red. Five more to go. Filaree is a great company to work with, orders come when said. They catalog is very helpful. Anyone just starting in garlic should use this company.

This catalog has an amazing selection - who knew there was so much to know about garlic? The catalog is a goldmine of information. It's a small operation, so if you call, you may end up talking to a machine, as everyone there is involved in the growing operations as well as the mail order. I just planted my first order from them this fall, so I can't make any comment about the end product of my order, but they were very helpful, courteous and prompt with the delivery. One of the varieties I ordered was out of stock, but since I had checked yes on the "can we substitute a similar variety" box, I received a very nice alternative, along with a handwritten note extolling that particular variety's virtues. They have varieties that you just can't find anywhere else, and the stock is firm and well dried. As long as this garlic comes up in the spring, I would absolutely order from them again!
