Christopher Ranch’s California Garlic Blog

It’s no mystery that fresh garlic is one of the most popular, versatile ingredients ever. What remains relatively unknown, however, are the distinct flavor, quality and health differences associated with varying garlic varieties. Christopher Ranch, a family farm in Gilroy, Calif., grows a California heirloom garlic that is a leader in each category. All Garlic Is Not Created Equal. We’ll show you why.

Helping Haiti

Haiti needs our help.

This is, obviously, not new news, and I’m a bit behind in my efforts to rouse help. However, some of the most critical aid Haiti will need is going to be in the upcoming months, when the hype begins waning, and we aren’t provided hourly updates of the Haitians’ dire situation. 

The devastation there is indescribable; up to 100,000 are feared dead, a city has essentially collapsed, people – with nothing left – are burying  their entire family, and the alive are going days without water and food. 

Absolutely heartwrenching.

It’s easy to feel helpless, but there are easy ways each and every one of you can reach out. In my opinion, the simplest way to donate – and what I did – is text “HAITI” to 90999, to contribute $10 to Red Cross efforts; the money is then applied to your phone bill.

For further aid information, however, visit these sites:

 American Red Cross



 Habitat For Humanity

 Doctors Without Borders

 Clinton/Bush Haiti Fund

 Direct Relief International

 Save the Children

 World Food Programme

While any help is tremendous, many say money is the preferred option, as the logistics of receiving and distributing random food donations can be challenging.

Don’t neglect Haiti.

Heed your humanitarian duty today.
