Wharfe Valley Farms review of 2017- time to look back and plan ahead ….

It’s December and time to look back and review 2017!

Sallyann and Geoff Kilby at local events Q4 2017.

Merry Christmas from Sallyann and Geoff Kilby, Directors of Wharfe Valley Farms, Collingham, Yorkshire.

We are incredibly proud to report that we’ve had another strong year with turnover growth of 10%, and have increased our Wharfe Valley Farms team to support this; Steve Kelly joins the farm, whilst Katie Hutchinson and Hayley Dodsworth work in sales and marketing, adding their unique talent to our business.

This growth comes from many factors;

The increase in contract bottling customers, which continues to grow in line with our own label production.

We have maintained our rapeseed price throughout 2017 despite a market price increase by being more efficient, ensuring our customers are able to make healthy profit.

We have listened to our customers and responded with the addition of a healthy Original Rapeseed Spray Oil, as counted by Slimming World, quickly followed by the launch of a new delicious Coconut Infused Rapeseed Oil, taking us to over 30 rapeseed products including oils, truffle, vinegars, mayonnaise and dressings.

There is a definite growing consumer awareness of the health benefits of using rapeseed oils over other higher fat culinary oil alternatives;

  • rapeseed oil contains the lowest saturated fat content of any oil
  • has less than half the fat of olive oil
  • 10 times more Omega 3 than olive oil
  • a good source of Vitamin E
  • high in monosaturated fats
  • higher burn point when cooking of up to 240 degrees

There is a real preference for the nutty flavour and TV chefs have embraced this and are regularly promoting rapeseed products on cookery programmes and in the media. This is also backed up by the significant growth we are experiencing from bulk orders of rapeseed oil from the restaurant sector, due to greater commercial use.

We are incredibly proud that in September 2017 we were awarded the coveted Great Taste Awards Star Rating for three of our rapeseed oils including Coconut, Sicilian Lemon and Chilli Infused Flavours. We were previously awarded this for our Original Rapeseed Oil. You can read more about this on the link attached:

We continue to use traditional farming methods of swathing the crop and take the farming risk of fly damage, as we believe that this is the most ethical and natural way to ensure the finest quality rapeseed products and the firm foundation from which we have built our excellent reputation for more than a decade.

In summary, hard work and determination to succeed has been the winning formula for the Wharfe Valley Farms business to date and this remains. We continue to fulfil our promises and grow the product range in line with consumers awareness and demand, whilst remaining true to our farming family roots.

We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy, healthy 2018.

From Geoff and Sallyann Kilby and everyone at Wharfe Valley Farms.


Festive Gifts Packs are made ‘just for you’ at Wharfe Valley Farms

Christmas Gift Packs Rapeseed Oils, Mayonnaise, Dressings Vinegars

Gift packs on the menu

It’s the thought that counts at Christmas and the personal touch that is remembered.

Wharfe Valley Farms, a leading Yorkshire rapeseed oil producer based in Collingham, offer customers the opportunity to personalise their range of festive gift packs with their favourite products and flavours. Customers can choose from the wide range of rapeseed oils, vinegars, dressings, truffles and sugar free mayo in assorted sizes and beautifully wrapped festive packaging and, as an added bonus, you can even add a personalised gift tag. Prices start from £7.50 so they won’t break the bank.

Wharfe Valley Farm was one of the first rapeseed producers in the UK in 2009, having recognised the many advantages of growing rapeseed crop on their farm in Collingham, West Yorkshire, using traditional methods of ‘swathing’, which is chemical-free harvesting. Its success is due to the increased awareness of the health benefits associated with using cold pressed rapeseed oils over other higher fat culinary oils, higher temperature burn point of up to 230 degrees, and popularity with TV chefs. Since then the range has increased to over 30 products, with a firmly established reputation as a leading Yorkshire rapeseed producer.

It’s official! Award Winning Wharfe Valley Farm’s Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oils have ‘Great Taste’!

It’s official! Our Wharfe Valley Farm Rapeseed Oils are award winning.

“GREAT TASTE 2017 AWARDS STAR RATING” – that’s the official verdict for three of our Wharfe Valley Farm Rapeseed Oils at Great Taste 2017, the world’s largest and most trusted awards, organised by the Guild of Fine Food and Drink.

To celebrate we are offering FREE DELIVERY on orders for 3 x 250ml oils in OCTOBER 2017. *Full details below.

With 500 judges, from all corners of the food world, blind tasting 12,366 products over 62 judging days, receiving the star rating is the equivalent of receiving an Oscar in the food and drink industry. We are so proud to receive THREE STARS in the coveted Great Taste 2017 Star Ratings on these delicious Wharfe Valley Extra Pressed Rapeseed Oils:

 – Wharfe Valley Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil – Chilli
 – Wharfe Valley Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil – Lemon
 – Wharfe Valley Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil – Coconut

Here’s what the judges thought about our Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oils:

Provenance: 4/5
Top marks for rapeseed oil that is grown, pressed and bottled in Yorkshire.

Value for money: 4/5
Considering the quality of ingredients used, the judging panel agreed that the price for a bottle is reasonable value.

Taste: 7/10
An exotic twist on rapeseed oil. The judging panel agreed that it had a nice flavour profile to sweet bakes, and was also ideal for stir frys as an alternative to coconut oil.

The verdict from each oil taste test:

  • Wharfe Valley Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil – Chilli:

Judges pleasantly surprised at the mildness of the chilli profile. Clean grassiness to the oil. We found a rich and flavourful oil with a well judged chilli infusion. A good product. Good golden colour, the rapeseed is very vegetative on the nose, the chilli heat comes through but is not harsh.

  • Wharfe Valley Cold Pressed Rapeseed – Lemon:

Lovely notes of lemon on the nose and in the mouth. The flavours balance well making a very palatable product. The lemon comes through distinctly while remaining balanced with the flavour of the oil. There is just a hint of pepperiness on the finish. Attractive ‘holiday’ colour and buttery mouthfeel.

  • Wharfe Valley Cold Pressed Rapeseed – Coconut:

Lovely bright looking oil. Well blended mix of oils with neither flavours dominating and a clean finish. A good product for those who enjoy the use of coconut oil but find it can be too harsh.
A good aroma of coconut followed by the back note of rapeseed, clean and both come through very well. As a finishing oil this would be good in a salad or in a dressing to add a touch of nuttiness.

  “We are very proud of our full range of products. Our rapeseed oil is grown, pressed and bottled on our farm in West Yorkshire. Our oil is Extra Virgin because we only press once and do not use heat or chemicals to extract the oil. Not only that but we do not use chemicals in our harvesting methods either, thus taking great care to preserve all the natural benefits of the oil.”
