Following years of research, Duncan launched Farrington’s Mellow Yellow Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil in 2005 as the UK’s first ‘seed-to-bottle’ rapeseed oil producer.
With his mother’s help bottling the oil, he would drive around local shops trying to gain customers who still remain loyal to this day. Later, in their farmhouse kitchen, Duncan’s wife Eli expanded the range to include infused oils, salad dressings and mayonnaises.
Today, the business has grown beyond anything Duncan could have imagined, being sold in shops and restaurants nationwide and abroad. Provenance remains as important as ever, with the same passion, attention to detail and quality going into every bottle.
Sustainability and the environment is very important to Duncan, so all the rapeseed grown for Farrington’s Mellow Yellow is grown to LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) Marque standards, a system designed to ensure environmentally responsible and sustainable farming methods. With solar panels, bee hives, wild flower meadow margins and beetle banks utilised on the farm to ensure that the environment is looked after.
