Near Port Stanley, Ontario, Gully Ridge Farms is found! Greg and Julie, their two children, and faithful canine companions, Willow and Mabel, embarked on a journey back to their roots in 2016. Driven by a shared desire to reconnect with the land and their community, they set out to establish a family business dedicated to cultivating fresh local food that would delight the taste buds of their surrounding communities.
At Gully Ridge Farms, their passion flourished, and they currently tend to three acres of Ontario's finest garlic, with dreams as vast as their fields to expand their offerings in the years to come. But what sets this farm apart is their innovative approach to preserving their precious garlic. They transform the bulbs into a finely granulated powder through a meticulous process of dehydration, ensuring their product's longevity without compromising on flavour.
Gully Ridge Farms infuses its garlic powder with a delightful twist of flavour and spice by introducing dehydrated Ontario peppers into the mix. And for those seeking the ultimate convenience, they also offer minced garlic, expertly blended with love and oil, to add a burst of flavour to their customers' busy lives.
Along their journey, Greg and Julie learned a valuable lesson – the tremendous amount of love and hard work required to bring a business to life. They discovered firsthand the unpredictable nature of Mother Earth, who held the key to their harvest's success, even if it occasionally meant getting stuck in muddy fields. But through it all, their unwavering passion and dedication fueled their growth, and they emerged stronger, ready to share their abundance with the world.
