Bart Nagel

Garlic farmer, garlic lover, garlic connoisseur and passionate locavore with a heart for full flavour food (read: very garlicky). Barts love for garlic has grown into a hobby that became a unique seasonal farm and food business. The Dutch garlic farmer is frequently invited as a guest speaker on growing garlic. Through Bulbs of Fire he supplies gardeners and commercial growers with seed stock and advise.

 

Simone Nagel

Supporting and loving wife of the garlic farmer. Expertly prepares our smoked garlic preserves and many other of our additional products and host of the garlic store at the farm when the farmer is at the market.

 

Lynn Nagel

Chief operator of the welcoming committee for everyone visiting the farm. Knows how to snap a garlic scape like a pro and is eager to show her skills off. Lynn also actively proclaims her love for garlic dip and garlic butter.

 

Luke Nagel

Supporting welcome committee officer, and profound critic of everything we do. On the record he hates garlic with a passion. Off the record: he pretty much devours whatever we put on his plate. But please don’t tell him he’s eating garlic!
