Hugh’s River Cottage visit Collabear Farm

Last Thursday was probably the most exciting day of the year in GOOD OIL land. We were crowded around the Television holding our breath. You’re thinking X Factor – but no, it was Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall’s River Cottage, and we were really excited because they’d visited the farm a few weeks before to film our Hemp Crop, and it had apparently made the final cut and was going to be on TV. ON TV!!

About 27 minutes in, after hearing all about rabbits eating his lettuces, etc etc, we got to our bit. Henry drives Hugh’s buddy Steve to our lovely hemp crop and talks a little about our wonder crop, that is amazing for your health and amazing for the environment too. Steve gets packed off with a sack of our fresh seed to see how well the River Cottage bunch get on with cold pressing and milling.

The cold pressing and milling back at River Cottage seems to go well, although we all agree our GOOD OIL looks a bit more appetizing… Still, overall it was a great feature for the profile of Hemp, and even without the mention of GOOD OIL specifically the amount of website hits we’ve had this week has gone through the roof, so we’re chuffed about that!

Take a look here on Channel 4 OD – as I said before, we’re about 27 minutes in….
