At Wharfe Valley we are incredibly proud of our Vegetarian Society Approved Status on our rapeseed oil range, awarded in 2009. There’s no better time to promote this prestigious award than the month of October when it’s world renowned Vegetarian Awareness Month and to share our favourite vegetarian roasted root vegetable recipe.
We have included a link to The Vegetarian Society website to highlight the rigorous criteria that must be achieved to be awarded this respected Trademark and then maintained to retain it.
Our range of award winning, cold pressed rapeseed products includes original and infused flavoured oils, salad dressings, delicious sugar free mayonnaise and flavoursome fruit vinegar. Our Yorkshire rapeseed oil adds a delicious nutty flavour which can liven up a salad and is incredibly healthy, containing important nutrients like vitamin E and Omega 3, 6 and 9. It’s an ideal partner for vegetables and meat free alternatives, eaten hot or cold.
We recommend an oil and fruit vinegar mixed drizzled over a crunchy salad or fiery roasted roots with your red chilli rapeseed oil, carrots, parsnips, squash, red onion, leeks and garlic.

Wharfe Valley have partnered up with a local hand sanitiser station producer to supply our customers with a robust and durable, portable and easy to assemble, station to dispense hand sanitiser safely.
In April 2020 Wharfe Valley added a range of high quality, 80% ethanol hand sanitiser to our product portfolio in a 1L bottle and a 5L container. This was well received by our customers and so we then introduced a spray lid and an automated, battery operated dispenser to the range. Since then we have seen growing demand for our products as the threat of Covid-19 still exists, especially since the hospitality sector re-opened.
The portable sanitiser station was an obvious addition to the new hand hygiene range as it means that customers and staff have easy access to a well positioned, durable and robust station.
As a food producer we understand that hand hygiene has never been as important. We tried the sanitiser station out onsite for ourselves and the staff found it to be an ideal solution to wash hands and keep everyone safe.
It is used along with the dispensers which are battery or mains operated and are suspended securely from the station. Local retailers already have this in operation and feedback has been really positive from them and their customers. With additional ongoing supply of both gel and liquid hand sanitiser available it’s our one stop shop for all your hand sanitising needs.

STAY STRONG, SAFE AND WELL THROUGH THIS TURBULENT TIME!
WHARFE VALLEY FARMS are a leading cold pressed rapeseed oil producer in Yorkshire since 2006. We have a bottling facility capable of producing 20,000 litres per week, and have put this to good use in the fight against the coronavirus by producing two new WHO formula, 80% ethanol, hand sanitising products.
Available immediately to all in a 1L bottle and 5 litre containers, we can supply individually, in cases and in pallets, to help to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
No strangers to facing challenge and adversity, myself, husband Geoff , and our son Stephen, are well known for finding solutions to support others and this current situation is no exception.
“In this pandemic all businesses are having to think differently and adapt to the unprecedented situation. We found that, almost immediately we were adversely affected by the lockdown, as a food producer supplying to the UK restaurant and catering market, which has been forced to close its doors to the public.
We had to take immediate action and found a supplier of PPE hand sanitiser ingredients which we could then bottle in our contract bottling facility, and increase supplies to support the country in the prevention of coronavirus, as well as keep our machines operating. We are incredibly proud to have shipped our first pallet of Wharfe Valley hand sanitiser to the frontline, to NHS staff and care workers in Belfast, ensuring they have PPE to continue their vital service”
After 6 weeks of lockdown everyone is feeling the strain but we must all continue to wash our hands, stay indoors where possible, and keep safe.”
Wharfe Valley are incredibly proud to launch a brand new hand sanitiser product, available from Monday, in 1 litre and 5 litres, screw top, to support the UK during this pandemic.
The product is an Ethanol blend, World Health Organisation (W.H.O.) Formula, proven to help to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Availability and prices:
Individual price per item :
– 5 litre – from £25 per item plus VAT and carriage.
– 1 litre – £10 plus VAT and carriage.
Wholesale pricing available in cases 2 x 5L or 12 x 1L – full pallets available.
Price on application for wholesalers/volume.
Proforma invoice required for wholesale/volume purchase.
Products available wholesale in cases of 12 or pallets.
Carriage quoted based on one UK mainland delivery address.
These new products have been turned around unbelievably fast after we were a victim of online fraud when Wharfe Valley paid for hand sanitiser at the start of the lockdown, which then never turned up. As a UK food producer and a company continuing to supply our customers throughout this period, we struggled to get hold of hand sanitiser for our own staff. We then found that there were others also being ripped off in the same way by unscrupulous businesses online.
We have since then sourced and partnered with a World Health Organisation (W.H.O.) Formula Hand Sanitiser supplier and have created an own brand product for all. We have an MSDS available and can confirm that the product meets W.H.O. Formula standard, containing Ethanol, H202, Glycerol and distilled water.
If you would like to know more about our new hand sanitiser product or a quote please contact me on 01937 572084. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our B2B page on our website: https://wharfevalleyfarms.co.uk/welcome-to-wharfe-valley-farms/supplying-uk-food-businesses/
As a Director of Wharfe Valley Farms I am finding, like many others in my position, that I am having to wear many hats (metaphorically); From managing accounts to cleaning, farm hand to bottling room assistant, new product developer, coming up with new products in the farm kitchen, new business development and customer services. It’s exhausting but as a Yorkshire farming family we are used to coping with challenges and having to find ways to diversify. It can get overwhelming but I’ve learnt that the best way to cope is to take on the many challenges we are all facing each day as they become most problematic, remain optimistic, support each other and to ensure we all stay safe and well.
With a further three weeks of lockdown announced yesterday we are meeting the Covid-19 pandemic challenge head on at Wharfe Valley, continuing to supply demand for our cold pressed rapeseed oil range across all areas of the food sector.
I am working hard to strengthen my contacts network now more than ever and welcome connections from all areas to share updates, ideas and solutions. Email: email@example.com or call 01937 572084.
Wharfe Valley provide a 5 litre cold pressed rapeseed oil in original or infused flavours. It’s extra virgin and Britain’s most versatile oil.

With 50% less saturated fat of any culinary oil, adds essential nutrients like vitamin E and omega 3 to your diet, and is a natural, home-grown product which tastes delicious when cooked, drizzled or dipped.
Living on our Yorkshire rapeseed farm has its advantages and has enabled Geoff and I to continue to supply the UK’s demand for fresh home grown produce, whilst taking all the necessary precautions. We endeavour to supply our customers online orders for as long as possible and have taken the necessary action to ensure the wellbeing of our workforce. We embraced cloud based technology some time ago and our team are now working from home and visitors on site are restricted. We would like to reassure you that we have plenty of made stock and raw materials to fulfil orders from our online shop to ensure our products are accessible to all our customers. As a nation we have faced adversity before and we will do whatever we can to support our customers, suppliers and team and wish everyone the very best during this current crisis.
There has been plenty of coverage on the news about COVID-19 (Coronavirus), and I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear that at Wharfe Valley Farms we’ve already put contingencies in place. As the impact of COVID-19 is increasing, we want to ensure you of the steps we have taken to minimise disruption to our customers, and that we are continually reviewing our operations to ensure that our workplace, processes and valued employees are safe. We are adhering to the guidance from the Government and have followed these to the letter.
These steps fall into key areas; Infrastructure, Remote Working, Meeting Precautions and Staff Cover.
We receive regular updates from all of our carriers on the procedures they are implementing to ensure they are able to continue operating their network, however please bear in mind that there transit times will likely be impacted in the worst affected areas globally. Our office remains open for business however we have reviewed our infrastructure to ensure that there will be no change in the quality of service provided to you should we have to close our office. You can continue to contact us by phone on 01937 572084 (Option 1) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Order Processing and Communications on our hosted infrastructure:
The majority of our infrastructure is hosted on the cloud. These companies already have strong contingencies in place, ensuring that the underlying services that we (and therefore you) rely upon will continue to run effectively. For more information from Microsoft, you can read their blog here.
Remote Working Capability
Additionally, the key software platforms our staff use to communicate with teammates and with customers are all cloud-based. As a farming family we live in the farmhouse onsite and work from our offices in a separate building. All staff members are fully equipped to work from home and all key staff have live-tested their home setup with various periods of working from home. This means we can continue to support our customers and maintain delivery solutions without needing to be in the office. We are confident that all critical services will continue to run as normal in the event of self-isolation or changes in Government advice.
As a precaution, we’re recommending remote training and meetings for our staff with all customers, rather than on-site visits (where possible). However, this will be agreed on a case by case basis and is likely to change in line with changing Government advice.
For all critical roles, other appropriate departments are ready, willing and trained-up to provide critical staff cover in the unlikely eventuality that several members of any one team are struck down at the same time. We hope that this information has been helpful in reassuring you. Other than that, we wish you and your team the very best, and please don’t hesitate to contact us if we can help in any other way.

At Wharfe Valley Farms in Collingham, Yorkshire we regularly share our rapeseed oil recipes as we are all food lovers in the team and passionate about our oils.
“I use it for every meal!”
You can heat rapeseed oil up to 230oC so it’s great for frying. I bake with it too! We love this lemon drizzle cake recipe shared below which we christened ‘Lizzle Cake’ in our home.
By Katie Hutchinson – Wharfe Valley Farms, Yorkshire, UK 02/2020
Lizzle Cake – Lemon Drizzle Cake with healthier rapeseed oil (lower fat): • 100ml rapeseed oil (plain or extra lemony using Sicilian lemon • 1 large lemon, zested and juiced • 250g caster sugar • 250g self-raising flour • 3 large eggs
For the lemon ‘lizzle’ sauce: • 1 lemon • 3 tbsp icing sugar
Method: Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas 4 and rub around a little rapeseed oil into a loaf tin, or use a silicon non-stick alternative. Put the rapeseed oil, sugar, lemon zest and the eggs into a bowl and mix together then add the flour and lemon juice and stir in gently with a wooden spoon. Spoon the mixture into the cake tin and bake for about 40 minutes. (Test with a skewer into the centre to check its cooked right through). Leave the cake to cool then tip onto a cooling rack. Squeeze the second lemon and mix the juice with the icing sugar then drizzle all over the top of the cake!
It’s an exciting time ahead for Wharfe Valley Farms as we are all set to grow in 2020!
With the uncertainty of how Brexit would affect supply of UK imports, and the unpredictable weather patterns and disease in Europe affecting olive oil crops, 2019 was a year to consolidate our efforts and plan for growth at Wharfe Valley Farms. As Yorkshire’s first rapeseed oil producer, created in 2006, we recognised our strong position to supply the upcoming demand for British produced culinary oil products long term.
We have concentrated our efforts on maintaining the high quality of our rapeseed oil products and service levels to our customers, whilst investing in new equipment and a new computer system to manage our sales, stock and accounts process. Testament to the success of this strategy was the awards we received including the Family Business of the Year and Excellence in Business 2019.
We have harnessed the power of digital marketing and invested in TV advertising, YouTube and social media to raise UK consumer awareness of our Wharfe Valley brand and the benefits of switching to UK grown cold pressed rapeseed oil products. We also invested in new packaging, point of sale materials to support our stockists, and increased our gift packaged range.
We’re looking forward to the year ahead and are all set for long term sustainable growth for both Wharfe Valley and our stockists. We will continue to raise awareness of our brand online and through events, offer product training workshops and excellent customer service. Thank you for your business in 2019!
Family is at the heart of Wharfe Valley Farms. With three generations involved in the workings of the farms it’s a true Yorkshire family business.
Whilst the grandchildren have been around over the Christmas break there’s been baking lessons, fun and games, along with the continual pressing and bottling of the rapeseed ready to fulfill the orders for the New Year.
We are all set for a fantastic 2020 and wish everyone a happy, healthy New Year!

We recommend Wharfe Valley’s Rosemary and Garlic infused cold pressed rapeseed oil grown, pressed and bottled on our farm in Collingham, West Yorkshire.
Did you know that you can cook up to 230oC with rapeseed oil without burning? It’s OK therefore to whack up the oven temperature – so turn it on and warm it up ten minutes before needed – adding a large roasting tin with 2ml oil covering its base – then prepare the vegetables and potatoes.
Perfect Roast Potatoes:
Peel King Edwards or Maris Piper potatoes – 2 per person – then halve each one and add them all to a pan of boiling water. Cover and cook for 10 minutes then drain water from the pan and shake the potatoes around until light and fluffy.
Remove oven dish and add the par boiled potatoes adding a little salt and/or pepper (to taste) and a good slug of Wharfe Valley garlic and rosemary rapeseed oil (or plain) to cover every potato.
Now add them to the oven and cook for at least an hour – turning every 20 minutes to avoid sticking and adding extra oil if required.
Crunchy Roasted Vegetables:
Add any combination of vegetables to a dish and add a covering of lemon or garlic and rosemary Wharfe Valley cold pressed rapeseed oil and cook for 40 minutes. Add a British healthier oil to your meal and cook on a high temperature of up to 230oC for 40 minutes – turning after 20 minutes.
