Welcome to Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil,
I hope you enjoy having a look through our website. This page is here to tell you a little about our company and our story and to introduce you to the team behind our brand.

 Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil

In 2008 my wife Jennie and I attended our first ever farmers market, excited to be selling our brand new product – Cold Pressed Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil. At that point we only sold our oil bottled in one size and in the natural flavour, now a few years on, our range is ever expanding. We produce a wide range of flavoured oils, dressings and mayonnaise - all pressed, bottled and blended by us here on the farm using our own farm kitchen developed recipes. Our ingredients are very important to us and we source as many as possible from other local producers we have met along the way.

Our team is made up of family members and friends allowing us to keep our brand close to our hearts. (Have a look at who’s who and what they get up to below!) We first started bottling rapeseed oil to offer a product that people could buy with the knowledge that each stage of the process is carried out locally. Low food miles are very important to us, as is supporting British farming.

North Breckenholme Farm is on the edge of the picturesque Yorkshire Wolds, just on the outskirts of the village of Thixendale. A beautiful village popular with artists, walkers any cyclists in an area recently made popular by David Hockney. In addition to growing and pressing our fantastic rapeseed oil we do still have plenty of arable land to work and nearly 600 breeding ewes. You can keep up to date with what’s happening on the farm across the seasons by following our blog.

Over the last few years Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil has grown and our products are now available through many of Yorkshire’s independent farm shops, delis and retailers, as well as at food festivals and farmers markets across the country. Recently we are delighted to have started stocking in London and the South of England. For details of where to buy take a look at our Events and Where to Buy pages.

Remember, we are always keen for you to keep in touch. Email us your recipes, let us know a show we may be interested in or a shop you would like to see stocking us. If you would like us to keep in touch with you then sign up for our monthly newsletter full of seasonal recipe ideas and promotions!
