Balmattum Garlic was established in 2019 when a dream to provide my son and myself a country lifestyle became a reality.
I purchased a humble 86 acres of land and planted my first crop of garlic shortly after.
Garlic wasn’t always on the cards I had originally planned to run sheep on the property but i felt that it would be unrealistic and too much when caring for Bolton (1 at the time) on my own. After a chat about garlic with my chiropractor I decided to do some research and well now we grow garlic.
I choose to grow our garlic without the use of chemicals and my aim is to continually improve the ground I am working with. Using environmentally sustainable practices isn’t always easy but I feel it produces a better overall product.
Our farm is also home to a small herd of Galloway Cattle and we also grow a small amount of crop in which we make hay.
At Balmattum Garlic we are passionate about the environment and part of that is limiting food wastage, did you know that in Australia fruit and vegetable waste on farm is between 20-40%?
Our aim is to limited wastage as much as possible. All the bulbs that would be classified as too small for consumer standards are used to make our minced garlic, garlic salt and garlic powder. Our on farm wastage would be around 1%
All our products are made as small batch production and we pride ourselves on producing quality, great tasting products.
I would love you to give our products a try, you wont regret it.
With Love Amanda.
