About thegarlicpeopleshop

Sales 227
On Etsy since 2020

Our family grows the materials for our products on our homestead nestled in the mountains along a wild river.

Our inspiration comes from the garden we have tended for the last 30 years. We have always grown garlic and made garlic braids and wreaths, mostly selling at artisan fairs. We live simply in our handmade mud house, generating our own electricity and homeschooling our kids (nearest school and post office is an hour a way when there isn't snow on the mountain---with snow, it is a 8 mile hike just to the car). We tried some fancy, flowery names for our biz, but our loyal customers kept calling us "The Garlic People," so we just stuck with that. When Covid hit, most of the fairs were cancelled and our teenagers held my hand as we leapt into online sales. Now I am really enjoying Etsy! I like sharing this beautiful land and our sweet life by spreading our products far and wide. We appreciate Etsy for giving us a way to bring the health and blessings of garlic to you!

    Farming is in my DNA. I share flowers to share joy, garlic for health, and chilies for fun. I love the wild even when I am chasing it out of our orchard (shout out to the bears!). I love watching things grow while hearing birds and the river sing.

    Loves to work hard. Loves family. Not afraid to get dirty. Soaks his t-shirt with sweat in a perfect heart shape.

    These two have grown up with this business. Their first years were spent peering over my shoulder while riding in a backpack. They were making their own products for sale by 6 but have their own inspirations now. They dry my tears and help with tech.
