Crash Barry, The Garlic Man

Columnist Crash Barry has penned a feature article for the new issue of The Bollard about working at Nezinscot Farm, a biodynamic farm in Turner, Maine.

Raw garlic oil, alive and intense, overwhelmed my taste buds, scorching my tongue and the insides of both cheeks with a Jalapeno heat. I chewed the clove a couple more times, gulped and swallowed. I felt an electric charge pulse from my brain to my toes, from stomach to fingertips. My body radiated a throbbing, rhythmic energy that moments before had been buried beneath the fertile soil of the Nezinscot Farm, atop a hill overlooking a river in the western Maine town of Turner.
