The oilseed rape is planted in August each year and takes 11 months to reach maturity.

During May the plants flower and the fields take on the characteristic yellow colour. After a few weeks the flowers start to drop off and the fields turn a lighter turquoise colour.

August is harvest time for the oilseed rape.

The process of pressing and bottling the oil is very simple.

  • Using traditional ‘cold pressing’ techniques the seed is ‘cold pressed’ to extract the oil.
  • The seed is pressed just the once to ensure only the highest quality oil is extracted.
  • The oil is triple filtered.
  • The oil is bottled.

No other ingredients, preservatives or additives are added. The oil is 100% natural.
