Wakelyns Garlic Bulbs, Organic

Hodmedod's British Pulses & Grains

Wakelyns organic garlic has now sold out for this year, sorry!

The perfect accompaniment to our beans (or peas or lentils or...): a few cloves (or a whole bulb) slowly cooked with your soaked pulses, some stock, a few herbs…

RealVeg work a few alleys between the fruit trees near the farmhouse at Wakelyns. The CSA structure they use means their customers take a simple share of the harvest, to share the risks and the rewards of growing. They also help on the land, planting, weeding, harvesting. Not customers in the usual sense - it’s a brilliant way of doing things.

This year and last year RealVeg set aside a bit of ground to grow garlic. In the spirit of the CSA model we've agreed to share the risk - whatever they grow, we’ll buy. They grew A LOT, but it turns out lots of people wanted delicious garlic (some even made it up to Small Food Bakery in Nottingham), so the ‘risk’ wasn’t such a risk after all - it was more a promise that enabled something brilliant to happen.

Do you want to share the reward with us? We have a few hundred bulbs available - order while stocks last!

And if you’d like to find out more about CSA check out the CSA Network UK. Another great working example of a CSA is Norwich Farmshare. We think of Norwich FarmShare as our sister enterprise as, like Hodmedod, they grew out of the Norwich Resilient Food Project, a community-led effort to create a more diverse, resilient food system for Norwich.
