About Us & Our Products
Having left my former job role in engineering for Aston Martin, I set about creating a business that would en- corporate both my family farm and sustainability. We are a small family farm on the outskirts of Warwick producing cereals and lamb all year round and in 2019 we set about building a sustainable agri-food business with the aim to make farming practices more environmentally friendly. In addition to strengthening the relationship between farmers and consumers, whilst encouraging the practice of buying local produce, thus Hemp Whole Foods was born.
Our product is cold pressed hemp seed oil, that is grown, pressed (under license) & packaged on our farm in Warwick by myself, my partner Amy and Ollie our new hemp apprentice. Hemp seed oil is a great and balanced source of omegas, ala’s and gla’s. Hemp seed oil is a far more sustainable tastier alternative to olive oil and has 40% less saturated fat. Hemp also has a whole host of health & environmental benefits too.
Our aim is to farm with the future in mind and reduce our carbon footprint as best as we physically can, in conjunction with producing great food with zero waste. We pride ourselves on being a zero waste company, we encompass every part of the plant. We grow a French food and fibre variety of hemp which provides us a multitude of bi products. These bi products are sent away to make clothing, candles, housing materials, cosmetics, cleaning products, animal bedding and even animal feed. On top of this our bottles are made from recycled glass, recycled paper and hemp twine.
Our efforts towards sustainability was recognised in 2020 where we won a British Farming Award for Arable Innovation, this was a very proud moment for the team as the business was very much still in its infancy. 12 months on and we have now been shortlisted for Diversification Farmer of the year with the Farmers Weekly Awards, with the winner being announced in October 2021.
Customer satisfaction is our number 1 priority followed by educating customers on hemp and the wonders that the plant possess, with small household changes we can all help reduce our carbon footprints and have a more positive impact on the world. We ensure to give 100% quality and service to all our customers which are always supplied with a smile and maybe even a cheeky tipple at Christmas (if Covid allows). We are always only an email away and usually reply within the same day, any questions or if you can’t find anything please don’t hesitate to get in touch firstname.lastname@example.org.

Amazing Hemp Facts
Did you know that hemp seed is the single most complete source of nutrition in the entire plant kingdom and the most complete source of protein for vegetarians? These tasty hemp seeds contain the essential fatty acids and amino acids your body cannot produce on its own; health, vitality and well-being wrapped up in a little shell and an excellent source of dietary fibre as well.
Hemp oil can also be hydrogenated to make hemp wax for candles, a far more suitable, ecologically friendly alternative to soya & paraffin wax.
