The Kane family has been farming in Myroe, Limavady, Northern Ireland for over 100 years. Richard (a sixth generation farmer) now works the land at Broglasco Farm, whilst his wife Leona is responsible for the business side of Broighter Gold Rapeseed Oil. Under their joint leadership the business has grown into one of the UK's best known and loved rapeseed oil suppliers. To this very day we still passionately tend our rape fields and plants as we stride to become one of Ireland's and the UK's best rapeseed oil suppliers and vegetable oil brands.
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 fetched some of their 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 that 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 aftertaste like olive oil & we joked that it was our "Broighter Gold". That was the spark that ignited what is now an award winning rapeseed oil grower and producer and one of the UK's best loved and star rated rapeseed oil suppliers.
