GarlicFest in Cleveland

Guys … are you wondering where to woo your honey this weekend?  Maybe somewhere you-know-who never took her?  Here’s your big chance!

Head north to Cleveland and spend the day at LoganBerry Heritage Farm celebrating the garlic harvest at GarlicFest!  (Laugh, but if you Google “garlic festival” you’ll get 500,000+ hits.)

No more driving to Delray, Florida, New York’s Hudson Valley, the Pocono Mountains or the icy tundra of Minnnessooootta to find a garlic gala — we have one here in North Georgia!

Impress your friends with garlic trivia:

  • National Garlic Day was April 19th this year
  • Chicago was named after the Indian word for garlic
  • America is only in 6th Place for global garlic production
  • Gilroy, California, proclaims itself the Garlic Capital of the world


The National Garlic Day website says: “Known as nature’s wonder drug, garlic is recognized for its wide-reaching medicinal properties, in the treatment and prevention of disease. It has been credited with extending human longevity, preventing certain cancers, lowering cholesterol levels, reversing high blood pressure, resisting the common cold and overcoming fatigue.”

Men around the world ingest garlic in order to stay single (whether they know it or not).

But I digress…

Saturday, August 25, 2012 is the day to pay homage to the humble bulb — a member of the lily family — we know as garlic.

LoganBerry Heritage Farm is the place to be from 10 AM until 4 PM for GarlicFest!  If you don’t come because of the garlic — the Stinking Rose — stop by for the food and music.

It’s all free, so you won’t have to pay a scent to enjoy the festivities.
