Garlic

Minnesota Garlic Festival

Jerry Ford loves his garlic.

The founder of the Minnesota Garlic Festival is happy to talk about the over fifty varieties of garlic we have here in the state, the fact that garlic comes from northern climes originally (so yes, those garlics grown here are heirloom varieties) and the Minnesota Premium Garlic Project he coordinates.
