Back in early 2014 the Garlic Farmacy was preparing to enter the local “Kempsey” agricultural show. But after some issues we decided to wait till 2015. So throughout the following 2014 seasons we nurtured our gardens so as the 2015 show entries were ready. While not all our entry plans came to fruition, we submitted some of our core produce that we are focussed on.
Our #ausgarlic is set to become the ‘bread n butter’ of our venture, so it’s essential to get this right. We entered our Hard Neck Turban purple “Glamour” garlic in the Kempsey Show. Our garlic was beautiful, tasted devine n spicy and we were rewarded with a Second Prize.
Our Fresh Turban ausgarlic that was converted to a Korean Style Pickled Garlic in late 2014 and cured in the bottle was the pièce de ré·sis·tance! This product is amazing and a taste sensation. We were rewarded as First Prize in the AoV Pickle section and also received the Special First Prize award of “Best Pickles” in the show. While we can take some credit for this added value garlic product, our Korean WWOOFers at the time helped with the authentic recipe and its preparation. We will continue this product line in late 2015 and may have it available before the festive season, but it still needs to mature in the package till early 2016.
The Garlic Farmacy is working towards more entries in the local agricultural and national shows in 2015-2016 as we build our product lines. Our award winning Bergamot citrus and other produce will be on show again.
