Every Family Business Has a Story, and Here's Ours!
The Kane Family have been farming in Myroe for well over 100 years, Richard (sixth generation farmer) now works the land here at Broglasco Farm, Limavady with the latest machinery whilst still using traditional methods, with modern techniques.
Broighter Gold Rapeseed oil, owned by Richard & Leona Kane was discovered by accident one evening in 2006. Leona was preparing the tea and had ran out of olive oil. Richard brought up some of the unfiltered cold pressed rapeseed oil which Leona used to cook their two fillet steaks, and make a salad dressing.
It was the smell of the rapeseed oil, was the first thing that caught Leona's attention, and the way the steaks didn't burn in the pan, the taste wasn't bitter, with no after taste like olive oil, and we joked that it was our "Broighter Gold".
I didn't need much convincing. This is an epic product, a British oil and a great example of successful farming diversification.
The oil is not only the finest standard but it also provides much desired health benefits to all guests. The Principle Chef and team also exclusively use Broighter Gold Rapeseed in their creations. Belfast Cookery School.
Ive always used olive oil and even brought it back from Spain when I was away on holidays. Im now totally converted after tasting Broighter Gold. It really is Liquid Gold.
Leona set the ball rolling with Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil, excited about the health benefits of the oil for cooking, frying, making dressings, it's a perfect all rounder. And decided to diversify the natural product of cold pressing rapeseed oil into a premium cooking oil, for us all to enjoy the health benefits of Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil.
