The business is a family run business by Dave and Barbara Wetzel who have prepared the extracted the Cod Liver Oil with great care and concern and with no additives. The fermentation process of this raw and unadulterated food, is a natural enzymatic and microbial action that releases the oil from the livers.
The produced fermented cod liver oil comes from the prolonged soaking of wild cod livers in brine, which allows cod livers to naturally ferment; the oil accumulates on top and is carefully collected. Most commercial cod liver oil manufacturing is highly industrialised and Green Pasture chooses traditional methods of production.
Fermentation is an ancient practice still used worldwide to safely preserve a variety of foods, including meat and fish. Producing cod liver oil through fermentation and gentle extraction may go as far back as biblical times and has been used to prepare and preserve food and medicine since the first written word. Using fish livers for medicine has deep historical significance in human medicinal history
