Knob View Farm
Knob View Farm is an 11-acre family operated farm. We are located just south of Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania in scenic Cherry Valley. Cherry Valley's soils are limestone based and is the site of the terminal moraine from the Wisconsinan Glacier and the melting of this ice sheet now provides unique minerals within these soils. These minerals impart unique flavorings within our garlic as confirmed year after year by taste tests of our customers. We gladly allow sampling of any of our garlic and you then become the judge and decide- so please taste before you purchase.
We practice organic methods and rely on crop rotation, green manure, compost and biological pest control. We do not use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides or genetically modified organisms. We strive to use an agricultural production system that sustains soils, biodiversity and that is in tune with our local surroundings.
Our field crops, garlic and potatoes, rely solely on mother nature in the form of rain fall, therefore they are not oversized by "plumping" through irrigation and/or over application of nitrogen. The result is garlic and potatoes that are more naturally sized with a high percentage of mineral and nutrient content. You can taste the difference.
We maintain memberships in the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) and the Pocono Garlic Growers Association.
We market our products mainly at local and regional festivals in PA, NJ, NY and CT. All our Gourmet Garlic Sea Salts are available for purchase on this web site. This year we will be packaging our garlic sea salts in our traditional re-useable 4 oz. tin and in a re-useable 4 oz. grinder!!
Remember we still offer free shipping for orders over $40. During the check out process place "Freeship" in the coupon/your code space. Garlic orders are not eligible for free shipping.
