Broughgammon Farm are obsessed with providing the best quality, tastiest produce fresh from our small farm in Co.Antrim, Northern Ireland.
We set up the farm back in 2011, when we saw that a majority of male kid goats born to the dairy industry were being put down at birth. This seemed such an unnecessary waste so we set out to take those males and rear them ourselves for delicious and healthy cabrito kid goat meat. Since then we’ve branched out into rearing free-range rose veal and also seasonal wild game.
We now have our own artisan on-site butchery, run seasonal cookery, butchery and wild game classes and have a little farm shop selling the best of Northern Irish and Irish produce. We also deliver our meat boxes all over Ireland and the UK.
The farm is situated three miles from the rugged North Antrim coastline, nestled between the towns of Ballycastle and Bushmills. Up a long winding lane off the Straid Road you will come to our haven, which is Broughgammon.
The farm is roughly a third arable, a third improved grazing and a third rough hill ground. With a stream running through it, a small pond, odd clusters of mature trees and well maintained hedgerows it really is an environmental paradise. And it is like this we would like it to stay!
We have quite a selection of activities planned for the day and there will be something to cater to everyone’s fancy such as our farmers market and farm walks, to fete games, ferris wheels and even a bouncy castle, with live music playing throughout the day!
We would not encourage visitors to bring anything for the animals due to health and safety reasons.
Wellies are a must as the farm might be slightly mucky if the weather is wet. Waterproof clothing would also be handy to but we hope the sun will be shining down on us.
Just south of the Distillery take the B17 (Straid Road) towards Ballycasle. After approximately 5.5 miles you will pass Banllinlee Crossroads. Approximately 1 mile beyond this, on the right you will see a white bungalow with leylandi hedges, and then a ruined stone croft with a rusty roof. On the right hand bend just beyond the stone croft, and immediately before the road signs there is a farm lane leading to a ruined ivy clad farm house. Take this track and follow it around the bend to the right and this will take you to the farm yard.
From the Diamond take the A2 towards Bushmills, via Market Street and Ramoan Road. Just after Ramoan Church this becomes Straid Road. After just under two miles you will come to Clare Forest. Go through this and past Maghery Road, sign posted for Ballintoy, staying on Straid Road. About 330 yards on the left, after the turn off to Ballintoy and immediately after the road signs there is a farm lane leading to a ruined ivy clad farm house. Take this track and follow it around the bend to the right and this will take you to the farm yard.
You may bring a lunch or snack with you if wish, however farm produce will be available on the day for all visitors.
Parking is provided on-site at the farm and we will have volunteers on the day who will be able to assist in directing you to the nearest available parking space and to the farm.
