About The Oil

Hudson Valley Cold Pressed Oils produces and presses oil from their own farm as well as using seeds sourced from their growing partners in the Hudson Valley area. We have found this process to be a perfect circle. We have come together with the Giles family and Walbridge Farms who are growing sunflowers not just because they look nice on their farm but provide an alternative protein source. As the crops are harvested and the seeds are transported to be pressed, the byproduct of producing the oil is a near perfect protein and healthier overall option for farmers to feed their livestock. In turn, this new feed creates a healthier animal and a better product for the farmers to sell. We have found that this relationship has strengthened the bond between many of our local farmers. Our oil has also been tasted, tested and approved by many CIA chefs. We are proud of our 1st year’s production. Just taste it and we are sure you will agree!
