Partner Product: Oliver Farms Sunflower Oil

This is the oil that got it all started in 2012.  Clay grew sunflowers with the intention of harvesting and pressing them for oil that fall.  Blessed with a good crop that year he purchased a press and made oil from sunflowers grown here on the farm. Oliver Farm Sunflower Oil has a bold rich flavor and is a bright yellow color.  It is a great oil to use for light sautéing and its bold flavor is great on salads. Sunflower oil is also a great choice for using with high cooking temperatures and is also a good source of vitamin E! 


Storage Tips- Arugula

Arugula has a habit of looking sad after a day or two in the fridge, but don't be discouraged! It's easy to revive wilted greens such as arugula by standing them up in a glass of cold water with a teaspoon or two of vinegar (white or apple cider would do well). The acidity of the vinegar helps the greens absorb water faster!
