How It's Made
Why Sunflower Oil?
In 2007, we started with only two-acres of our first crop of winter canola to press for culinary oil, and we haven’t looked back. We quickly found out how much the local deer populations appreciated our canola feeding stations, and needed a solution. Sunflowers became that solution. Although predation played a role in our decision to grow sunflowers, the need also had to encompass our overall vision for our farm. From our motto to “compliment not compete”, grew the desire to produce a product that has been absent from the New England agricultural scene. Culinary oils are the result of that desire. While researching how culinary oils are produced, we discovered that not only could we produce a human food product, but the meal byproduct, being high in protein, would give us the potential to produce our own home-grown feed for all our livestock. Our feed costs to date have been drastically reduced, and we have control over its contents. Our ultimate goal is to produce multi-use crops that aid in the sustainability of our farm and the local food system.
We grow over 14-acres of sunflowers that we cold-press into unrefined, Non-GMO sunflower oil using traditional extruding methods. We have a refill station at the farm and at all farmer’s markets we attend to reduce waste and encourage recycling. We have created feed rations for our hogs and sheep, and are developing a ration for our chickens. In only one season of feeding our own grain, our processing locations for our livestock have commented on the tenderness of the meat that they process from our animals. We attribute that increase in quality solely to the sunflower meal.
Coppal House Farm Receives 2016 Good Food Award
Rural NH Farm Becomes Nationally Recognized
San Francisco, CA: The Good Food Awards named Coppal House Farm’s Sunflower Oil a winner in the 2016 Good Food Awards.
Over 800 people gathered on January 15 to pay tribute to 176 Good Food Award Winners of 2016. By the majestic Golden Gate Bridge on the San Francisco Bay numerous farmers, chefs, journalists, and activists united to celebrate the exceptional food crafters including luminaries Alice Waters, Nell Newman and Slow Food Founder, Carlo Petrini.
The winners harken from 33 states, having risen to the top amongst 1,937 entries in a Blind Tasting with 203 judges held in September. The highest scoring entries were submitted to a rigorous vetting process to verify they met the sustainability and social responsibility criteria to win a Good Food. This year’s winners represent the forefront of American craft food, making products that are delicious, respectful of the environment, and connected to communities and cultural traditions.
John Hutton, owner of Coppal House Farm, was asked to give the acceptance speech for those who won in the oil division. “As a first time award winner, I was honored to be asked to speak and pay tribute to my fellow oil producers,” said Hutton. “Our ultimate goal, at Coppal House Farm, is to produce multi-use crops that aid in the sustainability of our farm and the local food system.
