Six Circles Farm

Garlic Heaven, and Then Some

By Carly Browning

When we think Six Circles Farm, the first thing that comes to mind is garlic. Their Scape-a-moli, an incredible garlic scape pesto made with garlic flower stems and cold-pressed local sunflower oil, is always in my cupboard. You can put it on pasta, bread, dip veggies in it and, if you’re feeling adventurous, stick your finger right in the jar.  They also produce garlic seed along with instructions on how to make it grow—talk about tricks of the trade! If you can’t wait to get your hands on their garlic, head to their website. They sell multiple types and of plenty of garlicky products. You can’t miss their pickles that come in two varieties: classic dill (that’s out-of-this-world), and a hot and spicy variety that’s pickled in apple cider vinegar with cayenne pepper. Aside from their legacy of garlic products, they’re a family farm that’s certified Naturally Grown. That means simply that they are committed to sustainable farming in harmony with nature and the community. You can find Six Circles, and their organic produce, at the Ithaca Farmers’ Market on Saturdays from 11-2 during the winter, with extended hours and days during the warmer months. Check out the sign below to see what they had last week. And if you’re headed to the market, make sure you read our Locavore Lunch column for a recipe made entirely with market ingredients. If you’re unfamiliar with anything they have, everyone working the Six Circles Farm table is passionate about their products and happy to answer any questions!
