Broughgammon is proud to be part of the Économusée, or ‘working museum’, network in Northern Ireland. As part of this we offer our hour- long ‘farm to fork’ tour to take you on a journey through our artisan food business.
Come see the kid goats and bull calves on the farm and learn their story from waste product to sustainable food source.
Back at our eco-butchery watch our craft butchers use traditional skills and modern knowledge to make our award-winning artisan products, and learn about the different cuts from goat, veal and wild game.
In the round-top barn learn about the history of the farm, the ‘Potato Wizard’, and the Irish Famine.
Learn about the importance of sustainability and the environmental ethos that drives what we do here at the farm.
Finally take time to taste our produce and peruse our farmshop where you will discover our full array of offerings from meatboxes to ‘good-life’ courses as well as a host of other local food and crafts to buy.
And don’t forget your free cookbook to take home with you at the end!

The Économusée concept was developed in Québec and involves partners from Canada, Norway, Sweden, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, Greenland, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The Économusée project provides a network for artisans to develop and combine culture, craft and tourism, creating an economic interacting platform from which these artists can encourage the promotion and development of traditional crafts, involving local communities and creating new job opportunities, in some instances allowing younger family members to share, develop and enhance the crafts and techniques of their ancestors.
To find out about other artisans in the Économusée NI Network visit the Causeway Coast & Glens Heritage Trust Website here.
Its anticipated that by 2018 there will be over 90 Économusée artisans worldwide, all the artisans and destinations involved can be found on the Économusée website here.
