Second Nature’s organic rapeseed oil is an exceptional oil made right here in Ireland. It has won multiple awards both inside and outside of the country. Its unique flavour and high quality has gained fame from Michelin star chefs to the home cook enthusiast.

We grow, cold press and bottle Ireland’s only certified organic rapeseed oil. Second Nature Oils also cold presses organic flaxseed oil. Sunflower and Pumpkin and many other seed oils could very easily be pressed here in Ireland and added to the range. Adding organic olive oil to the range could also be easily done.

When we innovated the growing of rapeseed in Ireland for culinary purposes Ireland was importing 100% of its culinary oil. No one was producing culinary oil in Ireland at that time. Now Second Nature Oils has sold oil to the Arabs! We have exported all over the world. There are many other companies who have since set up and tried to copy us but Second Nature is still the only certified organic producers of rapeseed oil in Ireland and the UK. (Did you know that non organic rapeseed oil can be produced with up to 22 different chemical inputs) Growing oil seed rape organically is not easy, but it is possible and we can show you how. Alternatively, it is possible to buy the seed in from a trusted supplier in Europe and press it here in Ireland along with a range of other seed oils.

As health problems increase and more awareness around climate change and the environment are being discussed daily, not to mention covid 19, more and more people are turning to Organic Produce.

My energy is currently behind starting an alternative school for my son, not in growing and pressing larger quantities of rapeseed oil and increasing the range of oils to meet the demand. My parents are at retirement age and we would like to wind down operations on our family farm. This business could be located anywhere.
