Sunflower Oil

Out of stock

This is the oil that got it all started in 2012.  Clay grew sunflowers with the intention of harvesting and pressing them for oil that fall.  Blessed with a good crop that year he purchased a press and made oil from sunflowers grown here on the farm.  Once we tasted it we knew we had something special.  There was no doubt it tasted like sunflower seeds.  Oliver Farm Sunflower Oil has a bold rich flavor and is a bright yellow color.  It is a great oil to use for light sautéing and its bold flavor is great on salads.   It is the families favorite to use for frying fish. Garden and Gun chose our Sunflower Oil as its Made In the South Food Category Winner in 2015 and it won a Good Food Award in 2017.   A surprising fact to many people is how healthy our cold pressed, unrefined sunflower oil is.  We purposely grow high oleic sunflowers for its healthy fats.

Oliver Farm

Pitts, GA

The oil business came about from an idea several years ago when fuel prices soared and the American economy faltered.  There was a lot of talk about alternative fuel sources.  That sparked an interest in an area that I knew very little about.  I began researching, visiting oil plants, and talking to individuals in this field.  My initial thought was to make my own fuel.  The equipment needed to extract oil is expensive, and the savings on fuel would not pay for the equipment for many years.  I was fortunate enough to meet a couple of people who influenced me to consider growing, processing, and selling food grade oil  During this time I discovered the cold pressed method of oil extraction which does not use chemicals or high temperatures to remove the oil,  This process leaves valuable vitamins and nutrients in the oil.  The oil also retains its natural flavor and color.   In 2012 I grew my first crop of sunflowers for oil production and by the end of 2012 I had pressed oil from sunflowers, pecans, and peanuts all grown in Wilcox County.  More oils followed and Oliver Farm Artisan Oils quickly caught the attention of chefs and foodies.   

As oil production has expanded and I begin to understand a little more about the properties and uses of various oils I am filled with awe and wonder at the countless ways it can be used.  Naturally tasty, nut and seed oils are necessary for balanced nutrition.  They can be used in fuel, cleaners, soap, cosmetic products, and have medicinal uses as well. Our simple process, genuine care for your approval, and desire to keep it pure and fresh make Oliver Farm a natural choice for any pantry.
