Wow, I'm pleased at all the interest in home-scale oil production. This all came, by the way, out of a free sample of Bija pumpkin seed oil at the Co-op last week. Bija is a Canadian company that has a plant in Lynden and makes a variety of oils from Whatcom County stock (wherever possible).

I think what I'll do is call on Monday to find out about fees/taxes/shipping, thanks Shannon for the idea, and that might influence whether one big group order would be best or if other groups of 4 should form. If you want to put it in your e-news, Shannon, that would be fine. At the least I can inform people. Send them to laurasellens@gmail.com. A working link to piteba: http://www.piteba.com/

To everyone who has expressed interest, thanks! I think I'll give this post another week or so, to see if anyone else expresses interest or anyone from the e-news, and then I'll contact you to make a plan.

Ah....thank you. I should have looked closer.
Comment by Charles Kelm on November 27, 2010 at 10:08am
Angela - the link works if you chop of the last two letters "if". Yes, it does nuts - one of it's specialties. There is a site just over the border in Surrey that sells these for $189, so this is a good deal.

Laura
I would be happy to post your offer of a group purchase for the oil press in the Garden E-News - if that is OK with you - let me know.

Laura, Regarding the expeller press....your link didn't work for me. I'm curious about the equipment but not ready to go in on a purchase. Thanks for finding this. I've been wondering what a low tech method of oil extraction would look like. Do you know if it works on nuts? Or what is the range of things that you can extract from?

I'd think that Brian and Alexandra at Inspiration Farm would be really interested in this equipment.

Might want to call find out the exact amount for import fees and taxes so you are not unpleasantly surprised.....
Comment by Celt M. Schira on November 26, 2010 at 2:39pm
Laura, yes, thank you, I am interested in group Piteba purchase. Be sure and ask Krista Rome and Allison Kutz. I am in the phone book under "Engineers, Electrical". I forward to hearing from you. Regards, Celt
Comment by Laura J Sellens on November 26, 2010 at 1:42pm
I am interested in purchasing a hand-crank expeller press (cold press) for home-processed oil. I found a model that looks really good for 100Euros (approx. $135), shipped from the Netherlands. If 4 are purchased at a time, they are 72Euros each (approx. $95). Anyone interested in going in on a purchase? I'm not 100% decided yet, but it sounds good...contact me on my profile page if you want to get in on this. http://www.piteba.com/if you want to look them up. Cheers, Laura jean
