Glen field Rapeseed Oil
Fintan Larkin runs a small family farm in Coolderry, which lies on the boarders of Laois, Galway, Tipperary and Offaly. Fintan grows cereals,he loves the process involved, the ploughing, sowing and harvesting of the crops. He began growing rapeseed a number of years ago in order to produce an alternative source of energy on the farm in order to reduce costs. Initially the crop was used to fuel his tractors and heat the house using the by-known product known as “cake”. After some research it jumped at Fintan that there is a commercial use of rapeseed, and that’s when he started producing rapeseed oil as an alternative to other oils.
