Award winning cold pressed rapeseed oil grown on the farm where the Broighter Hoard was discovered!
Nestled among the yellow fields of Oilseed rape in Binevenagh Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you will find Broglasco Farm, home of Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil.
Behind every bottle is a wealth of history. This local product, grown on the field where the Broighter Hoard was discovered, along with the colour of the cold pressed oilseed rape gives the product a brand image.
The Broighter Hoard or now more commonly known as the Broighter Gold, is 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.
At the Broighter Gold ÉCONOMUSÉE workshop, both Leona and Richard work hard all year to produce a premium product.
