Broighter Gold have been successful in securing the 3rd Artisan/Economusee for CCGHT for Northern Ireland – which will be fantastic advertising for Broighter Gold and also a new tourist attraction for Causeway Coast. Broighter Gold will be working with the Causeway Coast and Glens Heritage Trust, and eventually once thier new processing plant will be transformed into a living museum of us at work. It will offer visitors a unique opportunity to discover the history and methods of growing, harvesting and pressing rapeseed oil direct from craftspeople.
The ÉCONOMUSÉE Northern Europe Project sees the combination of culture, craft and tourism as local craftspeople open their doors to visitors to watch them at work and learn about the heritage and traditions of their skills. Norway, Greenland, Iceland, The Faroe Islands, Sweden, Ireland and Northern Ireland are all partners involved in the initiative, which was developed in Quebec, Canada. The project is funded through the Northern Periphery Programme and the Northern Ireland Tourism Board.
