From humble beginnings at a local farmers market selling their first bottle of cold pressed rapeseed oil, to an awesome range of products in just 10 years, this family owned company is a great success story and is now a multi-award winning company year on year too, thanks to the dedication and commitment of Adam, Jennie and the team at YRO.
Their North Breckenholme farm is situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, on the outskirts of a little village called Thixendale, Its very much a family run farm, and I love their commitment to keeping things local and supporting local in that great Yorkshire spirit.
The iconic bright yellow fields of Rapeseed flowers dot the Yorkshire Wolds with an instant pop of sunny colour. Rapeseed is not only a healthy and nutritional oil but it is also a great oil for cooking with.
Mix the magic ingredient of Rapeseed Oil with other ingredients and you’ve got a wonderful collection from the Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil company to try.
I have tried many of their products and they are delicious. I also love the sunny colour of them, from the mayonnaise, to the dressings and the oils themselves. It gives your cooking a great cheeriness.
They are also very generous sharing recipes on their website to try and they even have their own cookbook too. These guys also have big hearts, helping fundraise for charities, currently they have shortlisted three charities to possibly support this year, and have asked locals to select which one they’d like the Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil to support.
What I really love about their products though is that they are pure, no chemicals have been added and they are GM free. Again, it’s the real love that goes into these products from local Artisan producers, so you know its quality all the way.
