'I love Bath Harvest because it’s delicious, it’s local and they produce really great oils. Debbie showed up at the pub one day with a sample and I thought “Yeh, lovely” and I’ve been using it ever since.

Multi award winning Bath Harvest Rapeseed Oil is a Somerset grown, versatile and healthy alternative to olive oil. High in vitamin E and Omega 3 – produced by cold pressing small batches of seed we grow on Wilmington Farm located just a few miles from Bath in the South West of England.
Since Bath Harvest was established in 2011, we have introduced a number of innovative products to our range from the award winning rapeseed we grow on our farm. These include infused oils and mayonnaises. It's a testament to the versatility of British grown artisan cold pressed rapeseed oil.
We grow around 100 acres of Oil Seed Rape on the farm each year. It is part of the Brassicaes (or cabbage family) and is there fore a useful rotation break crop for us, replacing vital nutrients into the soil. We sow the fields in September and harvest the following year in August depending on the weather of course! The seed is then stored in a purpose built seed barn until needed – we do not store oil!
Our rapeseed oil is traditionally cold pressed, a single chemical free process which preserves the natural qualities of our oil creating a uniquely subtle, bright and light nutty flavour perfect for all your cooking and drizzling needs. We waste nothing in the process of making our oil, as the bi-product known as ‘cake’ is a high protein cattle feed we use directly on our farm.
We are very proud of our rapeseed oil. Provenance takes a part in the results you achieve year on year. There are three important elements which can influence the quality and flavour of British cold pressed rapeseed oil – seed variety, soil quality and type and of course the weather! We maintain consistency in quality by growing a single variety of seed each harvest. The soil can also be maintained and nurtured through modern farming practices. The weather however is a law unto itself and can be the biggest challenge to farmers!
