Greetings from Salty Dog Farm!
Sam Cheeney and Sasha Alsop own Salty Dog Farm where they have been growing organic seed garlic for the last decade on their small organic family farm in coastal Downeast Maine. They sell nine varieties of organic garlic ranging from hot to mild. Varieties like Chesnook and Music are great for baking while other varieties, like German Extra Hardy and Russian Red, run hot and spicy. For those garlic lovers that enjoy their garlic mild, Philips and Kerney are a great fit. All the garlic varieties that they sell are certified organic through the Maine Organic Growers Association (MOFGA).

In November 2009, Sam Cheeney and Sasha Alsop bought a 90-acre organic farm on a salt marsh in Milbridge, Maine. Sam's family homesteaded in New Hampshire and he grew up surrounded by fresh food. Sasha worked on a couple of farms and loved being outside in the gardens. Together they decided to start Salty Dog Farm. They primarily grow organic seed garlic. They both fell in love with growing organic garlic because they love the taste of it and the ease of growing it. They sold their garlic at the Common Ground Country Fair in Unity, Maine for a few years and realized that they might be able to sell for a longer season if they sold online. The website gave them the perfect opportunity to showcase their favorite garlic varieties. They currently sell nationally and even had their first international order (in Iceland)!
