The Kane family has been farming the lands at Broglasco, near Limavady, for over 100 years.
One evening in 2009 when Leona was preparing the tea and had run out of olive oil. Richard fetched some of their unfiltered cold pressed rapeseed oil which Leona then used to cook their two fillet steaks, and make a salad dressing. The couple set up the now multi award-winning company, Broighter Gold, in 2011, after recognising the versatility of their rapeseed oil.
Excited about the health benefits of using rapeseed oil for cooking, Leona set out to build a great brand and make Broighter Gold a leading rapeseed oil supplier. Broighter Gold have since developed their own infused range of rapeseed oils including garlic and rosemary, hickory smoked and chilli.
Broighter Gold is today one of Ireland's and UK's best known rapeseed oil suppliers, with their premium quality rapeseed oils sold in stores and used in top restaurants and hotels throughout Ireland and further afield including in Liberty’s of London, La Grande Epicerie de Paris and Jones the Grocer in UAE.
You can also order Broighter Gold’s rapeseed oils online from their website to be shipped anywhere around the world!
In 2012 Broighter Gold joined a new and exciting tourism trail known as ÉCONOMUSÉE, which was founded in Québec in Canada, offering a unique visitor experience, inviting tourists to watch artisans at work, learn about the history of their craft and the heritage of the traditional skills. Farm tours include a farm walk where you’ll be guided through the process of harvesting the rapeseed oil, a tour around the pressing room and bottling plant and a visit to the gift shop where you can purchase your own bottle of rapeseed oil to take home with you. April/ May is always the best time of year to see the oilseed rape in bloom and if it’s August/September, you might see Richard in the combine harvesting some of the crops.
