VIRGIN GARLIC - The Garlic You Don't Know You Want
The Hottest, Healthiest, Spicy Warmth Feel, Easy-To-Peel Garlic on the Planet.
VIRGIN GARLIC is the world's hottest, healthiest garlic. It is grown with nothing but garlic-love in the rich virgin soil of Canada's Laurentian Hills.
Since 2014, we've successfully grown thousands of heirloom (non-GMO) garlic bulbs in 100% organic mineral-rich virgin soil. The garlic has responded extremely well to the virgin soil on all fronts. Building on that success, we've invested all our time, effort, blood and buckets of sweat on this beauty of a garlic bulb that's perfect for any cook, any time, in any given situation.
The wait is over. It's here.
The highly anticipated campaign is finally here and ready to kick-off! We're super excited and equally proud of the work everyone has put in to make this happen. We're now officially ready, set, GO! to bring this "beyond organic" heirloom beauty out to all of you.
It's the new VIRGIN GARLIC.
Virgin Garlic, the only virgin garlic available that we know of, will definitely turn heads. It's bigger, more powerful, fresher and certainly makes an impression with its unparalleled taste and purity. It's got it all - the spicy warmth, piquancy character and lush living cloves that are easy to peel. It's also designed from the ground up - with roots growing deep into mineral-rich virgin soil. Go ahead and venture off the beaten path into an exquisite culinary experience that delivers intense flavour and health benefits.
The family farm team came up with VIRGIN GARLIC out of a shared passion for great tasting and healthy garlic. Their goal was to create a hot garlic bulb with intense nutritional value that is not only fun to cook with and easy to peel, but is packed with flavour and nutrient-dense enough to inspire everyone to include it in their daily cuisine. With Annette's natural-born entrepreneurial skills, teaching and farming experience, combined with Corinne's project development talents, Alfred's expertise in business management and Pierre's market garden experience, their segue into realizing their dream has been an enormous success.
Eat in style. Cook with pride.
VIRGIN GARLIC is so much more than the garlic you find in the local supermarket. It's a completely unique and different garlic with uncompromising quality. A tastier, and healthier bulb with big lush living cloves. Its piquancy character is more pungent and it delivers a spicy warmth.
For the VIRGIN GARLIC, we've wiped the board and started from scratch by planting heirloom (non-GMO) garlic in soil that has never been farmed before. We want the soil to be 100% organic and free of pesticides, herbicides, and harmful chemicals. We want the soil to be an extension of what VIRGIN GARLIC expresses and embodies: Greater warmth, richer flavour, nutrient-dense, more kick, bigger bulbs and plump lush cloves.
Simply pick your dish or recipe and get ready for the thrill of pure garlic enjoyment!
Get Peeling. Crush 'n go!
The new VIRGIN GARLIC boasts a much more powerful punch for your taste buds combined with growing in impressive "beyond organic" virgin soil. The two combined returns significantly increased value for your money - and a big WOW! when you feel it.
We've geared up by introducing regenerative agricultural practices to our farm. These practices allow the plants to take in carbon from the atmosphere and store it in the soil where it is needed for plant life. This results in significant benefits for both the health and enjoyment of virgin garlic users and of our Planet.
Ultimately, the only wealth that can sustain any community, economy or nation is derived from the photosynthetic process - green plants growing on regenerating soil. Allan Savor

BECOME A BACKER OF THIS PROJECT AND PICK A REWARD
This allows you to PRE-ORDER the Virgin Garlic before it is harvested and cured. You will not only receive your Virgin Garlic before anyone else, but you will get a "Special Backer Discount" only available here.
If you can’t support our Kickstarter now, no worries! Just keep us in mind incase things change down the road. In the meantime, we would be most grateful if you could share our information with "EVERYONE" you can and help us spread the word. Sharing is caring!
How to figure out how much garlic you need for a year:
Simply multiply how many garlic bulbs you or your family eat in a week and multiply by 52. That will give you a good estimate. For example, if you eat 2 bulbs of garlic per week times 52 weeks, that would equal 104 bulbs. There's approximately 6 virgin garlic bulbs in a pound so divide 104 by 6. So you would need approximately 17 pounds of garlic for the year.
Unravelling Some Surprising Benefits of Garlic Grown in Healthy Soil
Extensive modern scientific studies and medical reports show that garlic is an amazing resource of phytochemicals whose wide range of preventative and therapeutic properties benefit the following:
- Helps infection and inflammation
- Helps boost the immune system
- Rich in antioxidants
- Acts as a multi-spectrum antibiotic
- Fights off free radicals that cause damage in the body
- Acts as a detoxifier to help flush out toxins
- Helps to keep the heart and blood vessels healthy
- Helps with arthritis, asthma, bronchitis, common cold and flu, allergies and respiratory infections
Our goal is set. Let's reach it together.
Over the last 4 years, we've gained the experience and knowledge required to grow the best garlic on the planet. We want to take our garlic production to the next level and get even more people to benefit from our labour of love. We have set a goal of $15,000 to help with preparing more land for planting and for building a larger drying barn for the garlic. So far we have done everything on our own and now we need your help so that we can supply you and others with a consistent supply of virgin garlic year after year.
With this said, everyone who supports this campaign will secure their early access to our annual Virgin Garlic harvest.Once we prepare more land for planting and increase production, our goal is to make new virgin garlic products available. Our supporters will be the first to be offered exclusive, premium savings as well as VIP access to all our new virgin garlic products.

Risks and challenges
This project will happen as the Virgin Garlic is already in the ground and growing. The only major risk would be a delay caused by prolonged, strong or hazardous weather.
Regarding the other rewards, no worries! We use our own organically grown lavender buds for the French Lavender Natural Soap, the fine sand for our Deep River Soap is local and we have partnered with our neighbour, Whitewater Brewing Co. so we can assure you that we will not run out of "beer" for our "True Canadian Beer soap" made with Whitewater's "Farmer’s Daughter Blonde Ale"!
The "Garlic How-To" eGuide and the "Savoury Garlic Recipes" eCookbook are both in the final editing stage.
For the eCookbook Edition of "Cupcakes-All Occasion Treats", we have partnered with an established book publisher, FriesenPress Publishing based in Victoria, Canada. FriesenPress Publishing is an award-winning North American book printer established in 1907.
