Wharfe Valley are nominated for the ‘Rural Awards’ with Countryside Alliance

 

“We’re so proud to be nominated for a ‘Rural Oscar’ in the Countryside Alliance Awards 2019.”

Nicknamed the ‘Rural Oscars’ the Awards are now in their 14th year and are the Countryside Alliance’s platform for celebrating rural businesses, produce and communities. The Awards are public-nomination led, meaning that we have been nominated by one or more people who value the remarkable contribution we make to the local area. The ‘Rural Oscars’ are something of a GOLD standard in the rural business awards. The feel-good factor and pride that they bring cannot be overestimated. Those involved at every level have told us of the positive impact that this recognition has had on them, their business and their communities.

The 2019 ‘Rural Oscars’ were launched in early September across five categories and are based on a public nomination. Now that nominations are closed a list of regional finalists has been drawn up and judging begins. Regional winners will be announced and will be invited to a reception at the Houses of Parliament next June.

Wish us look! We will let you know how we fare!

Are you looking for a sugar-free Christmas? Add our delicious sugar-free mayonnaise to your menu!

Wharfe Valley Farms came up with a delicious and nutritious range of sugar-free mayonnaise in 2017.

It was the brain child of Sallyann Kilby, director of Wharfe Valley who, when diagnosed as a diabetic, wanted to be able to enjoy mayonnaise with a salad or a sandwich, but the sugar content meant it was now off limits. She set about testing out various combinations until she came up with a delicious, completely sugar-free, rapeseed oil based mayonnaise, made with free range pasteurised eggs.

Sallyann said, “Mayonnaise generally includes sugar, however I came up with an alternative, suitable for diabetics, which could be teamed up with a salad or seafood, so that I could enjoy a lighter lunch without compromising on taste.”

Since then Wharfe Valley have gone on to create five delicious flavours which were designed and tested in their own kitchen including lemon, lemon and garlic, smoked, smoked garlic and smoked chilli. The rapeseed oil base ensures that the mayonnaise has a reduced saturated fat content, making this a healthier alternative to traditional mayonnaise.

You can enjoy a sugar free mayonnaise or give it as a gift to a loved one and have a healthier Christmas.

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.
