Founded in 1956 by company patriarch, Don Christopher, Christopher Ranch has been the nation’s leading garlic producer for generations.
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. Every time that consumers choose to purchase Christopher Ranch garlic, they are investing in countless efforts to better the greater Gilroy, CA area. Whether it’s through industry leading wages, commitment to education, and support for conservation, Christopher Ranch has become the gold standard for corporate social responsibility.
