John Boy Farms
John Boy Farms grows garlic seed and food garlic on their 160 acre farm along the Red River in southern Manitoba. They sell food garlic from July until December and seed garlic from August until September.
Jean-Guy (John) is an agronomist with a Bachelor of Science in agriculture and has been growing garlic since 2006. He has been using his skills to develop better methods for growing garlic in Canada’s cold climate, as well as selecting the best garlic varieties suited to Manitoba’s and Canada’s harsh growing conditions.
They now sell their garlic across Canada through their online garlic store call garlicseed.ca. As well, they can be found at the St. Norbert Farmers’ Market in Winnipeg every Saturday from June until the end of October.
If you have questions about their products or growing garlic, please feel free to contact them anytime. They love to talk about garlic!
