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.

OIL, RESPONSIBILITY AND THE DREAM

Most of us wake up these days hoping to hear some good news about the Gulf oil spill, but after 2 months and counting, it’s not forthcoming. The President is talking about a plan and BP has offered apologies but the worst environmental disaster in America’s history will not be cleaned up for decades upon decades no matter how much money and rhetoric are thrown at it. What a tragedy…

About a month before the oil spill, Christopher Ranch drew up a Social Responsibility Statement outlining our mission to “conduct our business in an ethical, socially responsible, environmentally sustainable manner while working to nurture our relationship with our customers, employees, our community and the environment.” In light of the Gulf disaster, we are reminded daily of just how vital it is to focus on our responsibilities. Christopher Ranch isn’t perfect, no company is, but we remain vigilant in working to provide a safe place to work, products our customers can trust and a sustainability program that will take us through another 50 years of farming.

Our hearts go out to ALL affected in the Gulf, and we hope that a solution will be found and implemented as soon as humanly possible. I go to sleep each night wishing that the brilliant minds on our planet would come together to end this catastrophe. So far, it’s only a dream…
