Gold found in The Cotswolds!

Cotswold Gold is a new business formed at the end of 2009 by Charlie Beldam and Lawrence Millett-Satow after their graduation from the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester. The aim is to produce high quality rapeseed oil for culinary use and also utilize the waste product into a renewable energy thus allowing the company to be carbon neutral whilst operation a zero waste policy. The rape is grown and the oil is bottled on their farm in the heart of the Cotswolds. The Extra Virgin Rapeseed Oil has many health benefits compared to other oils on the market, these are maintained in the oil because of the traditional cold pressing method- just like high quality virgin olive oils.
