If you are concerned about GMO’s,

Commercial vegetable oil is the first thing to worry about. 

Soy, Corn and Canola are some of the most widely grown GMO crops. 

This makes home oil production a real priority for many people, either because you have no readily available source of certified organic oils (which are not allowed to be GMO) or in order to be prepared for further problems in the food supply. 

We have found that oil crops are satisfying and fun.
