THE LATEST FROM THREE FARMERS
This crop was seeded in May 2011 by Ron Emde. Southern Saskatchewan experienced unprecedented moisture that year with flooding becoming an issue. This posed several challenges for our Camelina Crops as Camelina likes dry climates. However, come harvest time the weather decided to cooperate and we had a long dry Fall to help us get the crop off. This Camelina crop was harvested in September 2011.
In August 2013, Ron’s son Kyler trucked a load of Camelina Oil to our crushing facility in Tisdale, SK. Golburn Valley Oilmills began crushing on September 4, 2013. THey completed the crush two weeks later and transported the oil up the road to Northern Nutraceuticals in Spalding, SK.
It was nearing the end of October 2013 and we were hoping to wrap up production early for the year so we could focus on promoting and selling the beatiful product we had just created. The last batch of oil we had crushed was needed to build up our 500ml Original inventory – it is our most popular item! So we set to work the last week of October 2013 and bottled up our 500ml Original batch 030300041. We hope you enjoy!
