Fresh Cold Pressed Oils
The cornerstone of the Small House adventure is our red Piteba oil press. Handcrafted in the Netherlands, this small machine is how we got started pressing all of the oils that we offer. Heated by a small kerosene lamp, the press is hand turned without the use of electricity. Because of this, all of our oils were pressed in small batches and therefore are always guaranteed to be fresh. Even though we have since upgraded to a larger press, we still believe in producing our oils in small batches and providing our customers with the freshest oils possible. Check out our selection of oils below. They are all culinary grade seeds but many have topical benefits.
