Goat gammon goes on sale in Ireland 07 March, 2016 By Aaron McDonald Shoppers in Northern Ireland looking for an alternative twist to their eggs, ham and chips are in for a treat, thanks to Broughgammon Farm. Specialising in goat kid meat, also known as cabrito, Broughgammon Farm has launched its first goat gammon product throughout Ireland. The Co Antrim-based company has developed the product after its goat-flavoured bacon was introduced into the market last year. Other products created by the company include ‘Billy Burgers’. “Developing gammon is a logical extension of our popular bacon product,” said Charlie Cole, who runs the business with his brother Sandy. The two also operate the 48-acre farm on the north Antrim coast that houses 300 goats.“The decision to launch goat bacon last year attracted a great deal of interest, especially at farmers’ markets in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. We are finding that people are increasingly considering cabrito as a meal option. Our Billy Burgers are proving extremely popular. Our business is growing substantially in the Dublin area through our participation in a range of activities there.” The company now prides itself on being one of the leading producers of cabrito in Ireland. Over the past two years, the brothers have been able to successfully grow their goat herd from 30 to 300 after finding a way to develop a sustainable business on an isolated farm in Co Antrim. According to the company, the meat it produces is lean, tender, low in cholesterol and is a sweeter alternative to lamb.
