Founded in 1956 by company patriarch, Don Christopher, Christopher Ranch has been the nation’s leading garlic producer for generations. With nearly 6,000 acres of California heirloom garlic, grown statewide, you can be sure to find our products in all 50 states.
While Christopher Ranch garlic may be grown across the state of California, by the end of our harvest, all 100 million pounds of our annual crop will make its way to our home ranch in Gilroy. Unlike many other garlic growers, who offer short-lived seasonal varietals, we offer the nation’s only true heirloom seed. Utilizing state of the art controlled-atmosphere cold storage, Christopher Ranch is able to offer fresh California garlic year round- ensuring that no matter what time of year, you and your family are guaranteed to only have the freshest and highest quality garlic products.
With a full-time workforce of over one thousand, our Ranch does far more than just fresh garlic. Every one of our 100 million pounds of California heirloom garlic will be run through our Gilroy production facilities: generating fresh garlic, cracked garlic, peeled garlic, roasted garlic, and much more. For every customer’s garlic needs, we have a solution.
