This thread is all about Filaree Garlic Farm

From their website:

Filaree Garlic Farm has been an independently owned grower and supplier of premium quality garlic seed for 28 years.  As keepers of the largest privately held collection of garlic in North America, our mission is to preserve and provide others with the opportunity to grow our more than 100 strains of garlic- collected from throughout the world. In recent years we have added several new seed products including shallot sets, seed potatoes and sweet potato plants. We serve organic gardeners, plant nurseries, and small-scale commercial growers.

What we grow

We have had the extreme pleasure of sharing with other garlic lovers the uncommon, exotic strains as well as the familiar, reliable ones. We have in our collection varieties that range from fiery hot to relatively mild, those that are sublime roasted and others that are unsurpassed raw. We have some with large, easily peeled cloves and others that will keep a full 12 months. They grow in different shapes and sizes and many combinations of colors. Our garlic is heirloom, non-GMO, certified organic!

We grow a 'true' shallot variety called "Dutch Red" that is grown similarly to garlic, in that each shallot clove is separated and planted to produce a new shallot cluster.  It is a heirloom variety with copper-red skin and a delicate sweet flavor.
We are also now offering "French Grey!" An elongated 'true' shallot, the tough skin covers beautiful white and purple flesh.

Our seed potatoes are 'double' certified as organic and as seed quality. This means that they have passed Washington State's strict testing for disease and virus.  We offer over 10 varieties of potatoes from versatile heirloom favorites to rare fingerling types. Our well rounded potato packs offer customers a mix of colors, cooking characteristics, flavor, and shapes for every garden size.

Our newest seed offering in one that we are very excited about. We are now growing sweet potato slips! 'Slips' are a funny term used to describe the bare rooted sprouts that are produced by sweet potatoes when grown for seed.  These slips are shipped bare-rooted and planted directly into the soil where they form a root system and produce a gorgeous crop of sweet potatoes! We offer a variety of sweet potatoes including orange fleshed standards and rare purple and white varieties.

Ships to US only.

I give this seed company 9 out of 10 acorns

I really like this company and my wife and I have been buying garlic from them to grow in our garden for years.
We really like the variety they have to choose from, and after about 5 years now we have figured out what does best in our southern climate.
Nearly every clove we plant grows, but there's always a couple that don't like with any other seed.

I recommend them!

I give this seed company 10 out of 10 acorns.

I've ordered garlic from this company twice and have been very pleased with the products and customer service.  If you don't know what to get, you can order a starter pack and they will base your order on what will grow best in your area - that was what we started with a few years ago.  The garlic grows really well  - I usually save some to plant again, but we bought some new varieties this year.  

I highly recommend this company.
