About Us

Our family has been farming for several generations and our aim has always been to create top quality produce which is reflected in our farm being "Red Tractor" certified.  On our mixed arable and stock farm in Fulbeck we grow wheat (our milling wheat is on contract to Warburtons Bakery and we won Northern Regional Grower Award in 2009), barley for malting and oilseed rape (we won Grower of the Year in both 2015 and 2016 for our rapeseed oil when we were members of Select Lincolnshire. Our herd of pedigree Limousin cows and their calves graze in the ancient parkland surrounding our little vineyard, which is Andrew's passion.

Our team is run by me Andrew, and my eldest son Tom  I am the farmer in charge of the overall running of our farm and drive the combine harvester at harvest time.  Tom's knowledge and drive is second to none and not only does he run the cattle enterprise with his wife, Laura, throughout the year.
"Tommo" is our young General Farm Worker who has been with us for a few years now and just loves driving all the tractors and is a whizz on the straw trans-stacker at harvest time. Wife Ronnie closed down our holiday let business in 2021 after running it for 11 years (for anyone who requires accommodation locally she still knows several owners who she can put you in touch with) but can still be found bottling our rapeseed oil and taking out deliveries to stockists and of course she always looks forward to checking our cows daily when they are turned out into the fields in the Spring and babysitting any grandchildren is always a pleasure for her. A few casual workers at harvest and that's our small, but efficient team at Ownsworth's.  So as you can see, we have a passion for what we do and work hard as a team to bring you the very best quality local rapeseed oil we can and we know that matters to you and that you will pay for that quality.

Our "Ownsworth's Rapeseed Oil" is grown, pressed and bottled by us on our farm - proving our commitment to you to provide the complete "farm to fork" rapeseed oil.  Unlike many other big brands who can mix different varieties of oilseeed rape from many British growers (or even mix with oil brought in from all over the world) here at Ownsworth's Rapeseed Oil we bottle our rapeseed oil for you using our own specially selected seed, grown in the limestone and ironstone soils of our farm in our village of Fulbeck.  This gives us that rich golden colour and delicious taste you won't find anywhere else - and as each season's growing conditions are naturally different, you could say our single variety rapeseed oil reflects that we have an annual "vintage".  So if you're not wanting a blended, mass produced British rapeseed oil - it has to be Ownsworths!

Ronnie created some wonderful recipes for vegetarian, vegan, coeliac as well as mainstream diets and and you'll find photos and some of her recipes in "Ronnie's Blog" on our website.  Our three children and their partners love to try out her new recipes, so you can rest assured the recipes are well tried and tested ready for you.
