Testimonial

"I just wanted to say a huge thanks to you. I so appreciate being able to watch the videos of the classes
online. I have wanted to come to your classes ever since I found out about them, but living in central Florida makes that difficult. ( I did see you years ago at the FPEA Homeschool Convention in Orlando and that's when I started milling.) You offer a wealth of information that really needs to be shared. Thanks for not charging for the online classes. It blesses my heart that you are willing to share your knowledge. I feel like I lack so much knowledge and am saddened that I did not receive the knowledge from my own mother. You are being a great mother to many people. Thanks again."

2021 Good Food Award

Smoke Point- 400

Oliver Farm Benne Seed Oil is extracted from the seeds of landrace West African benne (Sesamum Indicum).  Brought to America by African slaves, this hearty plant with many uses made its way into the local cuisine.  Gradually replaced by commercially produced oils and bred to resist shatter, the flavor of this unique oil was nearly lost.  Our partnership with Anson Mills, who grow the certified organic seeds along with countless others that are rare, endangered, or worthy because of flavor, has allowed us to offer the first commercially available Benne oil in the modern era.  While it sits on Slow Foods Ark of Taste for rare and endangered foods we hope to save this beautiful, flavorful, deeply cultural oil by consuming more of it. Winning a 2017 Good Food award brought widespread attention to this rare oil.  It’s complex and nuanced flavor make it a perfect finishing oil, and it was a favorite salad oil of Thomas Jefferson.
