HEALTHY

Canola oil is lower in saturated and trans-fats than olive, sunflower or soybean oil. It is entirely free of cholesterol and high in beneficial Omega 3 fatty acid, and vitamin E. It is also high in monounsaturated fats, which can reduce the risk of heart disease.

TASTY

Healthy soil makes flavorful oil. We grow only non-GMO seed using energy and soil saving minimum-till planting methods. This oil is processed in small batches without the use of solvents in the extraction process. The refining process does not use high temperatures so the oil retains all of its natural characteristics.

FRESH

Our fresh-pressed Canola oil is squeezed from non-GMO seed grown on our farm outside Madison, Wisconsin; using the freshest seed to produce the highest quality oil.

LOCAL

Most Canola oil is processed in large industrial factories with several hundred food miles from field-to-table. Locoil is pressed where it is grown and travels less than 50 food miles for its complete life cycle. Locoil from Madison-area restaurants is recycled to make biodiesel which in turn powers our farm equipment.

A SUSTAINABLE RECIPE

Our “Sustainable Loop” farming recycles waste energy and minimizes the carbon footprint of creating this cooking oil. This is also referred to “closed-loop” style production.

OUR PROCESS

1. WE GROW & HARVEST NON-GMO CANOLA SEED

We emphasize environmentally-friendly practices to reduce the fossil fuel required to grow our non-GMO Canola seed. Using minimum-till methods reduces carbon pollution and soil erosion, helping improve water and soil quality.

2. OUR SEED IS PRESSED ON-SITE

Using small screw presses, the oil is gently separated from the fiber, producing food and feed. The oil is refined with a low temperature process that never uses industrial solvents.

3. WE HAND-DELIVER OUR OIL IN STYLE

We use an SVO-converted 1983 Mercedes Benz 300TD station wagon for deliveries and recycling pickups.

5. WE RECYCLE USED LOCOIL INTO BIODIESEL

Locoil used by restaurants around the Madison area is picked up and recycled into biodiesel, powering the equipment used to grow and harvest the next Canola crop.
