Company Description

Zero Acre Farms is fixing one of the most problematic parts of our food system by introducing Zero Acre oil, a cleaner all-purpose cooking oil - with even more good fats than olive oil, a neutral taste, high smoke point and a smaller environmental footprint. Foods that are clean-fried in Zero Acre oil (not seed oils) have a delicious crisp taste with less greasiness, more heart-healthy fats and the lowest environmental impact compared to other cooking oils. Finally, restaurant and home kitchens have a replacement that offers the same versatility as vegetable oils without the health and environmental drawbacks.
