Specialist Flax Seed Production

PureFlax is a 100% pure and natural source of Flax seed oil with amazing benefits for animals.

That’s why we dedicate a great deal of time and effort to grow, harvest and bottle the highest quality flax seed oil possible, especially for you!

Want to know how we do that?  Read on…

Stage 1: Drilling & Planting The Flax Seed

Nigel first prepares the land, ploughing in Spring for nature to kill off the weeds and then drilling (planting) in late March beginning of April, when the weather has slightly warmed up and there aren’t any frosts.

Stage 2: The Seed Starts To Grow

Nigel first prepares the land, ploughing in Spring for nature to kill off the weeds and then drilling (planting) in late March beginning of April, when the weather has slightly warmed up and there aren’t any frosts.

Stage 3: The First Flower Appears

The most amazing delicate lilac flower appears in late May early June.

Stage 4: The Field In Bloom

After the first flower it takes about a week until the whole field is in full flower.

The field is blue from dawn in June then by mid-afternoon all the petals have dropped to the ground to leave the bit in the middle where the ‘pod’ forms.

The following day the field is blue again; this process goes on for about 10-14 days until all the plants have flowered.

Stage 5: Pods Everywhere

The pods gradually form over the next couple of months, until they are about the size of a little finger nail.

When the seed is opened up, it looks like an orange; the seeds are all in segments.

The crop dies off and when the stalks are crisp to break and brown in colour the crop is ready to combine…

Stage 6: Out Comes The Combine Harvester!

Combine time is hopefully about end of September, and is the most stressful process!

The sun has to shine on the crop for a few hours before the combine even comes out, and has to continue to shine whilst combining, otherwise the crop wraps round the combine and you can no longer harvest it!

Stage 7: The Big Sieve

After harvest, the seeds are cleaned and dried if slightly moist.

Cleaning the seeds is basically involves a big sieve to remove the chaff (bit of pod) that can come through the combine and block the press.

Stage 8: Extraction of the Oil

The seeds are stored in big storage bins in the press room, then gently pressed as required.

The oil is then collected in a stainless steel bin, then filtered and bottled.

No chemicals or heat are added to the process which means we extract less oil… but it is 100% natural!

Stage 9: The Shiniest Dog In Yorkshire!

Did you know, if your dog’s coat (and that of your other animals) isn’t as shiny as you’d like, adding a supplement such as PureFlax Flax Seed Oil can improve coat shine and health?

That’s why we believe our dog Pepper is the shiniest dog in Yorkshire!
