In 2012 Broighter Gold opened their pressing room as part of a new and exciting tourism trail in Northern Ireland. This initiative is known as Économusée, or working museum and was founded in Québec in Canada. Each Économusée offers 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.

They are a working farm, and depending on the time of year you visit, you may also see some of the fields being worked while you are here. April/ May is always the best time of year to see their oilseed rape in bloom, which is a delight to the eye.

Perhaps, if it’s August/September, you will see Richard in the combine harvesting some of their crops. They will also guide you through the process of harvesting their rapeseed oil and give you a tour of the pressing room and bottling room, and of course they will have plenty of Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil for you to take home with you when you are ready to leave.

It’s difficult to say what else you will see as you just never know what is going to be happening on the day until you arrive! But you will definitely enjoy a farm walk, see machinery, and a walk around the pressing room, bottling plant, and small gift shop where you can make a purchase.

You will also find out about the Broighter Hoard or now more commonly known as the Broighter Gold, a hoard of gold artifacts from the Iron Age of the 1st century BC found in 1896 in a field close by Broglasco Farm. The hoard included a 7-inch-long (18 cm) gold boat, a gold torc and bowl and other jewellery.
