HardneckGarlic.com & Beets Workin' Farm

We are one in the same....Located in Southeastern PA's beautiful Lehigh Valley, what started as a "hobby" has grown into so much more!  After retiring from a successful career in the Cable & Satellite industry that included executive assignments around the globe, we settled into our "family farm."  Hence the name "Beets Workin'" Farm!  Intent on raising our girls, sustaining our family and growing old doing what we love.  Somewhere along the lines passionate hobby turned into profession and away we went.  Nowadays we grow a handful of veggies that we sell at our farmstand (open daily) and Trexlertown Farmers' Market (Saturday AM) but our true passion continues to be HARDNECK GARLIC.  There's something about planting that little clove in fall, seeing it pop up first thing each spring and turning into a bountiful bulb in the summer that captivates us.

How We Grow

Are you Organic?  This is usually the first question we are asked.  Important question for those that care deeply about how they nourish their families.  Unfortunately a question that is no longer easily answered.  We grow sustainably and only use products approved by OMRI (Organic Materials Review Institute) but we ARE NOT "Organic" simply because we refuse to pay a fee & surcharge for someone to "certify" us.  The "organic" label, much like most everything these days, has been corrupted by corporate interests and policy wonks and we don't see the value in participating in their scheme.  What's the most important thing we can tell you about how we grow?  We nourish our family with the same produce grown on our farm.  There is nothing more meaningful we can say than that.
