Welcome to Seismic Gardens Seed Garlic. We are a micro farm specializing in several acclimatized seed garlic varieties. We also grow berries and fresh seasonal vegetables. 

Located in the high desert of Eastern California, we are surrounded by some of the highest mountain peaks, many over 14,000ft. Off to our east are some of the driest deserts in the U.S.

Looking across the Owens Valley towards the Sierra Nevada Mountains

This geography makes for challenging growing conditions. At 4000 ft we get winters cold enough for the hardneck garlics to thrive and grow to great size. But not so severely cold to produce a good softneck. 

The garlic we have been working with do very well in our climate and latitude. We grow using minimal till, cover cropping, remineralization, compost and crop rotation. All techniques to encourage the biology in the soil to be at optimum condition to provide the necessary nutrients for the plants. This produces a very clean, healthy garlic bulb that receives no herbicide, pesticide or chemical fertilizer. 

Seismic Gardens has been growing garlic since 1994. Please take a look at our growing techniques page to get a more comprehensive view of how we do it. Garlic can be a very rewarding crop to grow in the home or market garden. Starting with our seed is a very good way to ensure success.
