Frank Weakland Big Elk Garlic Farm EST. 1999 Frank wasn’t born into farming, but that didn’t stop him from becoming a farmer. Ever since helping out on local farms during summers off from school, he’s loved working in the field. He loved it so much that he saved up enough money in high school to get some farming equipment of his own to start growing hay. Since then, he’s grown his own business added corn, soybeans, figs, tomatoes, and (most importantly!) garlic to his list, to name a few.
