about luke

We are a small family business in the rolling hills and farm country of western New York that value the people we work with and our customers who share our love of garlic. We hand pick our scapes and they are processed by the hands of Mennonite women known for their work ethic. Our scapes have been so popular we are expanding while keeping our values in place and giving even more local people seasonal employment. And now we can ship to our customers around the world. Order our fine products here.

The name Luke was chosen after researching the deeds to the Mill Creek Farm from the 1850s. Luke owned the Sawmill Yard Farm and Mill Creek Farm property is a portion of that original farm. Mill Creek refers to the creek that runs through my property that was dammed to supply waterpower for the sawmill. 

I wanted the product to reflect the heritage and tradition of this farm. I feel the name Luke reflects honesty, steadfastness and commitment, which is a hallmark of these quality products

Pickled Garlic Scapes - the recipe
I developed my recipe and produced the first trial batch in my kitchen using the help of my family members. During my childhood, my parents taught us how to can and pickle the produce grown on my grandfather's farm. Luke's Pickled Garlic Scapes are made from fresh New York State grown garlic and then pickled using Luke's exclusive recipe. We tame the curly stalked scape by canning it with liquid, peppers and spices. Enjoy them straight out of the jar.
