.Folly Farm is the smallest registered farm in Oregon, located at the base of Mt. Fannie in the Grande Ronde Valley. We specialize in on gourmet garlic and open-pollinated heirloom vegetables and seeds.

We also are a stop along the Grande Ronde Farm Trail and home of the Cove Natural Foods Co-op, an anchor drop for Azure Standard.

Folly Farm is open by appointment for fresh garlic and garlic products when available. Fresh garlic season is late June through October. A typical harvest season goes like this, give or take a week or two:

Mid-June: We remove the Scapes to encourage a spurt of bulb growth

Mid-July: Garlic Bulbs are harvested, bundled, and hung up to age for a few weeks.

August: Bulbs are trimmed and cleaned for market.

August thru October: Garlic sales are open while supplies last.

Late October: Time to plant the next-year crop.
