The Garlic Farm –a third-generation, award-winning farming business based in Newchurch– is finding success across Europe thanks to its innovative range of over 60 garlic-based food and drink products.
The company has secured over £20,000 worth of sales to Germany, Sweden and Denmark over the last year with this figure estimated to grow by at least 25% over the next two. The Garlic Farm’s most popular export product is ‘Vampire Slayer Seriously Hot Sauce’ which is flying off the shelves in the German and Swedish markets.
Barnes Edwards, Managing Director at The Garlic Farm: “In all cases, demand and our local reputation has driven our exports as we have been approached by customers directly resulting in a steady and sustainable compound growth in our export markets. It is great to be able to represent the UK abroad. We are very proud of what we do, and it is great to get this validated by being selected by international buyers. If we can find success overseas so can other UK food producers.”
Fresh and ambient products
The business’s range of fresh products include white garlic bulbs, garlic grappes, garlic plaits, smoked garlic, black garlic and seasonal garlic products such as elephant garlic, green garlic and scapes, with the farm’s ambient collection including everything from garlic sauces, chutneys and butters to garlic beer, vodka and ice cream.
All recipes are developed by the farm to make the most of its garlic’s spectrum of flavours and then made by various specialist producers across the south of England.
