FOR SALE: Delicious culinary oils made from wild-foraged nuts in the southern appalachian mountains

Hickory Oil: a tasty oil made from the closest relative of the pecan. Good for cooking, light sautéing, and lots of other uses you might use olive oil for. It’s the olive oil of our region! $10 for 5oz, $17 for 10oz. bulk rates possible!
Black Walnut Oil: a rich, aromatic oil made from our native walnut. The smoke point of this oil is too low for most cooking applications, but it’s amazing in dressings, or drizzled over both sweet and savory foods. $18 for 5oz.

These oils are produced at a small facility that processes foraged nuts into food products. I could go on at length about things that excite me about what we’ve got going on, but i’ll limit it to this for now: nut oils are the ultimate in deep-rooted carbon-sequestering regeneratively-sustainable oil production in our region, the olives of north america. also nice as skin oil!

purple mooseage me to order. i can take paypal, checks, or cash. will charge for shipping.

thanks for checking this out!

That's amazing  Greg, your oils look beautiful. How large is the press that the facility uses?

our main press is screw press, and i find it a little hard to refer to size with it, like you can with a hydraulic press. decent size? we get a bit more than a gallon of hickory oil per hour when running - but there’s a lot of work on the nuts to get them to that point.

i saw your pm, i can talk shop more there.
