In this 2-part episode of Mother Earth News and Friends, Bevin Cohen of Small House Farm talks about the flavor, nutritional, and sustainability benefits of making your own seed and nut oils, including how to get started in small-scale oil production. We’ll also be diving into the details of a few crops highlighted in his new book, The Complete Guide to Seed and Nut Oils, that can provide plentiful, unique, flavorful oils for your household.
