Curing growth with garlic

December 29, 2008

garlic36Garlic is a nutraceutical food that helps fight disease. But can it also be a cure for cancerous development?

My friend Dan Hobbs, who with his family raises certified organic garlic among other crops on his farm near Avondale, Colorado, has come up with a novel approach to keeping some neighboring farmland in production and out of the hands of developers.

Dan is selling garlic subscriptions and using the funds to pay off a loan on the 30 acres. The way it works is you buy a share and he sends you 10 pounds a year for three years, shipping is included. You can sign up at

Dan says for a small shipping/handling fee you can split a subscription with friends or family.

I eat Dan’s garlic whenever I can get my hands on it. It’s the juiciest and most flavorful I’ve ever tasted. Plus, it comes with the confidence that you are buying from a small Colorado family farm that is doing things the right way.
