Summer Harvest Capture Perthshire in a Bottle

Introducing Summer Harvest, producers of multi-award winning Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil which they grow, press and bottle on their family farm in the heart of the fertile Strathearn Valley in Perthshire.

For more than 130 years, Summer Harvest have farming the green hills of the Strathearn Valley. From Ferneyfold Farm, near Gleneagles between Perth and Crieff, husband and wife team, Mark and Margaret Bush have been producing their exceptional oil.

The best oils are cold pressed as cold pressed oils retain all of their flavor, aroma, and nutritional value. Masters of cold pressing, Mark and Margaret have perfected their technique to retain the natural goodness of the rapeseed. Tests have shown that Summer Harvest's Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil has a high Omega 3 content, naturally occurring vitamin E, no trans fats and has only 6% saturated fats (half of those seen in olive oil).

A lot of hard work goes into making a bottle of Summer Harvest oil. August is a busy month at Ferneyfold farm as it is both harvest and planting time. Oilseed Rape takes almost a full year to grow. By May the vibrant yellow flowers carpet the fields for a few colourful weeks before dropping away to leave a lovely turquoise landscape.

Once harvested, the cold pressing of the seeds begins. The seeds are ground down, the oil oozes out and pools in large vats where it is left to settle, then twice filtered. Only then will Mark and Margaret bottle their flavoursome, aromatic and nutritional Summer Harvest oil.

Along with their fab oils, Mark and Margaret also produce dressings, a truffle-infused oil (a fav at Fresh Food Express) and marinades, teaming up with Comrie-based Dalchonzie Fruit Farm for flavours like Scottish bramble & juniper and raspberry. All of which you can try here at Fresh Food Express.
