About the Mohawk Valley Garlic and Herb Festival
The Mohawk Valley Garlic and Herb Festival was founded in 2000 by a few enthusiastic Garlic farmers from the Little Falls area. They had found the soil and climate of the Mohawk Valley to be conducive to growing an excellent garlic crop and that the crop was well received at their local Farmers’ Market. Some of the first farmers visited and then began to sell at both the Vermont Garlic Festival and the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival. As the story goes, it was a remark such as: “We should start a Garlic Festival of our own!”
UNIQUELY LOCAL. The Mohawk Valley’s climate and soils are ideal for growing garlic and herbs, which is why we have so many local producers. The Mohawk Valley Garlic and Herb Festival is a non-profit agricultural festival; we aim to provide information to area would-be farmers and gardeners pertaining to the benefits of growing these crops.
