Texas Black Gold Garlic is made from Texas-grown garlic - from their farms to your table. The rich, black cloves of Texas Black Gold Garlic are created from white garlic, grown right here in Texas, thanks to the local farmers they work closely with. The company donates 5% of all proceeds to the Chef Cooperatives initiative, a group of chefs who host and create quarterly farm-to-table dinners to benefit local Texas farmers – one farm at a time!
Pharma from the Farm makes being healthy easy with black garlic in capsule form. Throughout history, garlic has been used for an endless number of maladies. Now, black garlic raises the bar. It has more than quadruple the antioxidants of raw garlic (Jang et al., 2008) and contains S-allyl cysteine (SAC), which is reported to support healthy cell regeneration, immune system function and bacteria balance. Additionally, it powerfully supports healthy blood sugar, improves blood circulation and much more, making this product truly unlike anything else on the market.
Chef Cooperatives is a national nonprofit organization comprised of chefs who passionately support the farm-to-table movement by raising funds through pop-ups for our community farms and ranches. Not only do they host events and pop-up dinners, but they volunteer for other influential nonprofit groups and provide an integral network for our cities to call upon in times of need and national disasters.
