Swallowtail Farm is a family farm-based small business. 

Ali Gangnier Ross and Glenn Gangnier along with our children began our adventure at Swallowtail Farm on the Scotch Line near Perth almost 10 years ago.

Our home farm location has recently changed locations to 2191 Bathurst 5th Concession where we focus on growing great garlic.

For more than 10 years we have been committed to growing organic, award winning heirloom garlic, for planting (seed garlic) or culinary purposes (table or eating garlic). We also offer delicious garlic sauces, spreads, pestos and organic garlic powders and spice blends. We typically grow 10 varieties of hardneck and softneck garlic.

You'll find us at the farm, farmers market or a garlic festival near you.

Our products are grown without synthetic fertilizer, pesticides or other such artificial products but are not certified organic.

Garlic.  We grow a wide variety of limited quantities of garlic selections including Music, Red Russian, Spanish Roja, Korean Purple, Siberian and Czeck Broadleaf. We sell garlic braids, socks and pickled scapes – no bulk sales. Call ahead to pick up at the farm during August-October.

Christmas trees. Are you interested in having a tree that looks like a real tree and that has the aroma of a freshly cut tree this Christmas? We offer locally adapted, fragrant Ottawa Valley White Spruce trees grown without any synthetic fertilizers or sprays. We do not prune our trees severely, which leaves them with a natural look. You pick the tree and we cut it for you – it can’t be fresher than that!  Call ahead and plan your visit starting December 15.

We plant two trees for every one we sell to keep our commitment to the environment.

Garlic is king in Dave Cornell's garden.
Sure, he grows a wide range of other crops such as asparagus, tomatoes, green beans and rhubarb, but garlic is his primary focus - 3000 plants covering 13 different varieties.
While Dave has been an avid gardener for 40 years, it was only 20 years ago that he started growing garlic and that was just as a lark to see if he could do it. He had been moose hunting with some buddies when the topic turned to growing garlic and Dave took up the challenge of seeing if he could grow it.
"It started out as a hobby and turned into an obsession" is how Dave describes his two decades of growing garlic. Dave sells directly at farm gate as well as at the Eastern Ontario Garlic Festival held in Verona and the Lanark County Harvest Festival, located at Beckwith Park. His daughter Donna Chute uses his garlic to make jellies such as balsamic fig, cranberry onion and roasted garlic jellies - all marketed under the Ashton Station name.
The flavours of the individual varieties range from mild to strong, some bulbs contain many cloves, others have fewer but larger cloves. "I specialize in the hotter varieties of garlic," Cornell says, stating that this is where the market is these days.
Growing garlic on the scale that Dave does is virtually a full time job during the growing season because of the weeding, watering and fertilizing involved. Dave is a passionate organic gardener and while he is not certified, he does everything organically. He has four compost bins which provides him with compost. He also uses sheep manure and bone meal for fertilizer as well as grass clippings for mulch.

We are a diverse small family farm offering a variety of products to our loyal customers. In the summer we produce a wide variety of non certified garden vegetables with a higher concentration on garlic, both braided and loose, and sweet corn.
We truly enjoy our honeybees both for their incredible pollination capability and the exquisite honey they give us. We extract our honey twice per season giving us the opportunity to sell both spring and fall unpasteurized honey .
We have free range chickens giving us a rainbow of colours. Our customers enjoy seeing white, brown, pink, green and blue eggs in their carton and the fresh free range flavour of the eggs is incomparable!
In the spring we tap a limited number of Maple trees and have a quantity of maple syrup available as supplies last.
My pride and joy are our Boer Goats. Our farm raises both purebred and percentage Boers. The Boer is a hardy meat breed and are easy keepers. Ours only require a lean to for winter conditions and are healthy and friendly. We sell them as purebreds, registered if requested or commercial for meat or hobby. Spring kids arrive in early April and it is optimal to reserve one early . We currently are adding red and spotted genetics to our Boers for eye appeal.
Our firewood is usually preordered and is well seasoned mixed hardwood. Occasionally we have some available.
Everything we produce is the hard work of our own family. We are very happy with what we produce which makes the hard work involved so very worth it!

We are a new vegetable farm operation located in Jasper, midway between Smiths Falls and Merrickville. We grow a diversity of vegetables in 3 acres of field crops and in an innovative system of heated greenhouses. This allows us to extend our season into the winter months.
Our goal is to help increase the supply of local, high-quality organic produce in Lanark County and Ottawa, particularly during the off-season. Our farm is in the process of organic certification and we adhere to the Canadian organic standards.
We sell our produce through a unique Winter Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. CSA is a model where customers buy a share of a farm's produce up front, then receive a regular basket of food over the farm's harvest season. Bluegrass Farm offers one of the first winter CSA programs in Lanark County, delivering baskets to customers every two weeks from mid-October to mid-March. Each basket is a mix of carefully stored crops from our fall harvest, and freshly harvested greenhouse produce. We offer CSA pick-ups at our farm, in Perth and in Ottawa. Our 2015-2016 Winter CSA shares are now on sale through our website.
We also sell to restaurants and wholesale buyers.
For more information or to sign up for our CSA, please visit our website: www.bluegrassfarm.ca
