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 sauteing 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!

What do I do with Dandelion Greens?

Dandelion greens are super good for you! There are lots of ways to benefit from this bitter tasting leaf. Saute or braise them with lots of garlic and lemon-serve them as a side or mix in with pasta topped with a cheese like Parmesan. Juice them for a quick liver cleanse. You can incorporate them into a salad tossed in a citrusy vinaigrette. Swap out half the amount of basil for a batch of pesto. A natural diuretic and full or Vitamins A, C, K and B2, dandelion greens also have more iron and protein than spinach! So eat up!
