THE GARLIC YOU'VE ALWAYS NEEDED BUT NEVER KNEW EXISTED
At Forest Cove Farm, our virgin garlic is designed from the ground up with your love of garlic and your health in mind …no compromises!
Virgin Garlic is heirloom (non-GMO) garlic that is "organically grown" in "virgin soil".
Virgin soil is soil that has never been cultivated before. The soil of a forest floor is virgin soil and it has its own "living virgin ecosystem".
Because garlic is such a miracle food, the purity of the soil in which it grows matters immensely. At Forest Cove Farm, our “nutrient dense” Virgin Garlic, with its unparalleled taste is grown in a living virgin ecosystem. That is why it is the healthiest garlic on the Planet and …it is “beyond organic”.
WHY OUR VIRGIN GARLIC IS THE BEST ON THE PLANET
A problem exists with our global food system because the average food item travels over 2500 KM before it reaches your plate. Most of the time we don’t know where our food comes from AND we don’t know what’s in it, what’s on it, who grows it or what soil it was grown in.
In 2016, the US accounted for only 0.5% of total global garlic exports while China accounted for 72.8% of total global garlic exports.
Canada imports approximately 80% of the garlic consumed in the country each year. The majority of this garlic is imported from China. This would not mean much to us if we think about it lightly with the view that “Everything is made in China”, but it should be a major alarm for our health. Chinese garlic is noted by chefs for its metallic bitterness for a good reason.
For hundreds of years, it has been a common practice to use “raw human feces” for the fertilization of soils and gardens in China. This has created soils loaded with disease-causing pathogens, pharmaceuticals, toxins, drug residues, heavy metals (such as arsenic and cadmium) and other harmful chemicals.
Today, we have scientific evidence showing that hundreds of these dangerous drugs, disease-causing pathogens, toxic chemicals and pharmaceuticals "remain" in human waste even “after” the raw human waste has been treated in “sophisticated treatment plants”.
According to an article published in Environmental Health News on November 22, 2013, “Only about half of the prescription drugs and other newly emerging contaminants in sewage are removed by treatment plants”.
In line with that, one cannot even begin to imagine the level of toxicity and poisons present in soils and gardens fertilized with "raw human feces". Who wants to eat food grown in this “MUCK”?
We all deserve better and we can do better. That's why we need each other.
We would be delighted to be “YOUR GARLIC FARMER" this year and every year so that "YOU and everyone you care about" can consistently enjoy and experience the benefits of the freshest, healthiest and most nutrient dense garlic on planet Earth.
