    it was a beautiful day in the Valley. a great tour of a 1 1/2 acre plot growing various kinds of garlic (it is almost harvest time). come to the Garlic Guy's stand in Los Olivos May 19th - he is passionate about what he does!

    My first outing with this group and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Interesting tour guide, beautiful venue, perfect weather and great company. Looking forward to future events. Special thanks to Poul for his time and for welcoming us to his farm, and to Gerri for organizing these fabulous outings. Donna Q.

    Poul is most certainly an authority on garlic and shared his knowledge with us. And he is a lot of fun. Touring the farm was wonderful and tasting some fresh garlic was an experience.

    Combine beautiful weather in a beautiful setting with an informative, interesting guide (the Garlic Guy), add wonderful companship and I experienced a perfect afternoon. I feel that I have not tasted real garlic in my lifetime until this exposure yesterday. This was a wonderful experience for my first meetup. I look forward to more meetup adventures. Thank you Gerri French for always enhancing and opening up my world.

    This was my first Meetup event and I will definitely be attending more. Poul is crazy passionate about growing garlic and I found his enthusiasm to be wildly contagious. The whole event was relaxed, fun and very educational. I never realized there was so much involved in growing garlic and with over 100 varieties, there is a lot to grow. Hands down Pouls garlic is worth a drive to Los Olivos. It’s pungent flavor and kick knocks it out of the bulbpark. I bought 2 fresh bulbs and have been mashing cloves with butter and spreading it on slices of French bread. I had two for breakfast! The flavor is intense. It starts off with an explosive heat kick which subsides into a full bodied lingering savor. After yesterdays Meetup with Poul, I can never think of garlic the same ever again. I’m totally hooked on the real deal!

    Although I did not harvest any garlic, but I had fun in the Farm and I enjoyed the fresh garlic taste.
