Come and meet the family, we have added two new products to the Farrington range this year!  Many shops are enjoying great success with the whole range, but if you have yet to try them, then please do come and visit us on stand 1135 at the Speciality & Fine Food Fair in London on 6-8 September.

Northamptonshire’s Finest!

We were delighted to scoop Runner Up prize for Best Local Product at the Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards 2009, held at Holdenby House last week.  The judges included celebrity chef Sophie Grigson, Michelin-starred Aday Gray, chef Stephen Bulmer (all long term Mellow Yellow fans) and of course, the general public!  Although a national brand, Mellow Yellow is proud of its roots and didn’t mind coming second to local butcher Sauls of Spratton’s excellent potted beef, especially as they do, of course stock Mellow Yellow!

Farming update

As you will no doubt be aware, we are Britain’s original “seed to bottle” producer.  We are pleased to report that although many people are complaining that they have not had a summer, this year’s harvest has been considerably drier and therefore easier than last year!  Our LEAF marque rape was all harvested a few weeks ago and is ready to press, on demand to ensure the freshest product for you and your customers.

If you are unable to make the show but would like further information, please do contact us on 01933 622809 or by email ; or one of our brilliant wholesale suppliers, who are always happy to hear from you:

Summer has finally arrived, the harvest is in full swing and we are busier than ever on Bottom Farm!  Welcome to our summer newsletter, where we are in the press, on the box and more…..

In the Press…

We hosted a very successful press day in May, where, in spite of the rain, we enjoyed Mellow Yellow drizzled barbequed asparagus cooked for us by Adam Gray (Head Chef at Rhodes Twenty Four in London).  This has resulted in some excellent coverage in magazines such as Delicious, Countryfile and Good Housekeeping.

On the Box…

ITV viewers in the Anglia region will be able to catch us on “Country Lives” on Friday 22 August at 8pm and in the Meridian region on Sunday 31st August at 6pm to see Duncan give a tour of the farm and some background on Farrington Oils Ltd.

Show Time…. We continue to show at both the trade and retail fairs and we have really noticed in the retail shows how familiar people are with Mellow Yellow as a brand and how aware they are of the many health benefits of cold-pressed rapeseed oil – many have stopped using olive oil in favour of Mellow Yellow.

Thank you to those of you who dropped in on Duncan at the Speciality & Fine Food Fair in Harrogate in June.  We also had a good show at the CLA Game Fair in July at Blenheim, where this time the sun shone as it should!


Award winning Dressings!

The dressings have been flying off the shelves.  Although people do associate them with salads and warmer weather, it is well worth remembering that they are also delicious with steamed veg, as well as smoked fish and cheeses.

SALSA… No, thankfully we haven’t all taken up latin-american dancing but we are very pleased to have attained our SALSA (Safe And Local Supplier Approval) accreditation which means that you can be confident in the high standards to which our oil and dressings are produced.
