The story of the Jeruzalem SAT oil and feed mill from Središče ob Dravi dates back to 1919, when the production of pumpkin seed oil began. This is also evidenced by the records of the Središče chronicle. It was managed by the Vargazon family. Today, the company Jeruzalem SAT oljarna in mešalnica Središče d.o.o. is located at the same location, which is owned by the employees and participating members.
We preserve the tradition of oil production in Središče ob Dravi from generation to generation.
With our ancestors’ new knowledge and experience, we ensure that our customers receive the highest quality 100% unrefined pumpkin seed oil, produced naturally and free of additives and dyes. It is classified in the highest quality class and among Slovenian protected special agricultural products or foods with a geographical indication.
Pumpkin seeds are carefully selected from local growers, who grow them in the fields with the most sun in the Prlekija and Prekmurje regions.
Pumpkin seed oil is a culinary specialty of North-eastern Slovenia with a unique, distinct, and excellent smell and taste. We are happy to prepare a tasting for all of our visitors and welcome them to our store, where we offer everything from pure pumpkin oil to a variety of mixed oils, pumpkin seeds (roasted, ground, salty, natural, or sweet), pumpkin pastries, pumpkin noodles, pumpkin liqueur, “bučotelo,” and a diverse range of local products.
The process from field to oil is lengthy, but it only takes a moment for a drop of our pumpkin oil to conquer you for good.
