Published:  31 March, 2014

Northern Irish goat kids’ meat producer Broughgammon Farm has been recognised for its enterprise at the Countryside Alliance Awards.

The company, which has a 300-strong goat herd at its family farm in Ballycastle, Co Antrim, was named Irish Champion at the awards.

Broughgammon Farm will now go forward to the UK and Ireland final.

Brothers Charlie and Sandy Cole run the 48-acre farm on the North Antrim coast, and have grown their goat herd from 30 to 300 over the past two years.

Lyall Plant, chief executive of the Countryside Alliance of Ireland, said: “The Cole brothers have demonstrated the vigour and innovative thinking to improve their business, while at the same time proving to be a valuable asset to the local community.

“There is no doubt that Broughgammon Farm will go from strength to strength as the business continues to grow and develop and this, in turn, will only enhance the local community and economy.”
