Calvia is a small family run farming business and proud producers of Cheshire’s very own Cold Pressed Rapeseed Oil, based near Macclesfield – named after Paul and Carols two children, Callum & Olivia.
Rapeseed oil is the British alternative to Olive Oil, but with half the saturated fat, and packed with nutrients : Omega 3, 6 & 9, to help boost the immune system and lower cholesterol, and Vitamin E which is a powerful anti-oxidant. It’s hugely versatile in the kitchen and can be used in cooking, baking, dressings and frying safely due to its high smoke point of 220c, and most of all delicious, Calvia won the Great Taste Awards for 2yrs running !
Paul and Carol are passionate about preserving the wildlife habitat, especially the humble honey bee, with over 750,000 local bees pollinating the Oilseed Rape crop. Bee keepers come swarming back every year, as their hives quadruple in size and produce their fabulous Calvia Rapeseed honey.
