Meet Our Producers

Ownsworth Farm

Here at The Dip Society we are proud to support British producers and use local ingredients where we can. To celebrate British Food Fortnight we are delighted to be introducing you to some of our wonderful British Producers.

Ownsworth Farm provide us with our British unrefined, extra virgin rapseed oil, which helps put the ‘Super’ into our Super Duper Houmous range.

Ownsworth is a family run farm based in Lincolnshire and is run by husband and wife duo, Andy and Ronnie Ownsworth and their small (but mighty!) team, inclusive of their two sons and partner – a real family affair!

This passionate family of farmers have passed down their trade knowledge through generations and continue to produce the very best quality local rapeseed oil. The oil is grown, pressed and bottled by Andy and the team on the farm and it's the carefully selected seeds from the limestone soils which give the rich golden colour and delicious nutty and creamy taste - perfect for our Super Duper Houmous range. 

Many other houmous brands use mass produced oils that are not traceable and are pressed using heat or chemicals. Ownsworth rapeseed oil is cold-pressed to retain the nutrients – which means it is far more health benefits for you. Rapeseed oil has the lowest saturated fat content of any cooking oil – half that of olive oil! It is also rich in Vitamin E and omega-3 and 6 fatty acids.
