Zero Acre Farms

Cooking oil that’s better for you.

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.
