Hello and welcome!
My name is Fintan Larkin. I run a small family farm in Coolderry, which lies on the borders of Laois, Galway, Tipperary and Offaly.
I grow cereals, perhaps not the most lucrative area in farming but because I love the process involved - the ploughing, sowing, and harvesting of the crops.I began growing rapeseed a number of years ago in order to produce an alternative source of energy on the farm in order to reduce costs. Initially, I grew the crop as a fuel which ran the farm tractors and heated the house using the by-product known as "cake".
I began to think there must be other commercial uses for the rapeseed that I could investigate and venture into.
After some research a real viable option that jumped was the growing use of rapeseed as a food -- an alternative to other oils such as olive and sunflower oils.
True enough, our oil did taste good with a beautiful, fresh nutty flavour. And so Glen Field Rapeseed Oil was born -- which we plant, grow, harvest, press, bottle and sell for you to enjoy.
The Glen Field
is one of the more fertile
fields on our family farm.
Lying on a southern slope facing
the sun so it produces
the most flavoursome oil of all
which we capture and bottle
Pure Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Rapeseed Oil
