Scene in Highgate: Sunflower Fields, Forever

If you travel down the Gore Road in Highgate Center, this is what you will see.

We aren't the only Highgate farmers with a value-added component to our business.

This is where the sunflower oil I cook with comes from.

It is clean, clear and light; not strong or murky like some other local brands I've purchased in the past.

Where can you buy it? Hudak's farmstand in St. Albans (less than a mile from I89) carries the "Rainville Farms" brand of cold-pressed, local organic sunflower oil. It's a bit pricey, but what isn't that's produced on a small scale?
