Our founder, Lorna Lumb, believes that when it comes to produce, the best quality can be found in your own backyard. The quality of items found in grocery stores prompted her to experiment with growing herbs and garlic locally, and what she discovered was that many people go a lifetime without experiencing fresh, chemical-free produce that is nutrient dense and abundant in flavour. She is pathologically curious and wants to know what home grown and dried herbs and spices would taste like — experimenting with things like ground paprika and hot peppers. Twilight Herbs and Garlic now has plots (and a small greenhouse) full of quality, chemical-free herbs and garlic that she sells fresh and handcrafted into the unique blends that many have come to know and enjoy.
We grow our house garden the way our ancestors did before someone thought it was a good idea to grow food with chemicals. The Twilight fields are grown the same way, but with new ideas, biotic* methods, and technology to maximize efficiency, quality, and yields. We start with maximizing soil health by minimizing tilling and carefully choosing cover crops to add organic matter, nutrients, and improve nutrient uptake to the herb and garlic crops. If necessary, we add only biotic soil amendments and as a last resort only, we will employ pest and disease control methods that are listed in the Organic Production Systems Permitted Substances Lists. At Twilight Herbs and Garlic we also follow the Organic Production Systems General Principles and Management Standards, and our own proven biotic methods. All of these practices help to create an ecosystem that attracts beneficial organisms and build nutrient dense soils, which help to grow nutrient dense food.
