Thirty years ago, as a retirement project, Paul and Mary Lou Pospisil turned a 17-acre bush lot in the SW corner of Lanark County into a small farm called Beaver Pond Estates. Their quarter-acre garden is surrounded by lovely perennial gardens, shrubs and fruit trees, and features many cultivars of organic seed garlic.
Paul, known as ―the garlic guru of Eastern Ontario, and Mary Lou are founders of the Perth Garlic Festival. Among their garlic-related activities are research trials (over 200 cultivars have been trialed to date), an annual garlic grower’s field day, and garlic consultations and workshops for new growers. To encourage garlic growing of garlic in Canada, Paul & Mary Lou also publish The Garlic News, providing garlic information as well as a growers’ networking forum. ($20.00 per year, available by mail or electronic copy)
Products may be purchased at the farm gate or by mail order. Seed garlic of successful strains from the trials is available for sale to home and market gardeners.

Products: 

seed & table garlic in season, tomato seedlings in the spring
