Established in 2010 by John Rogers, Newgrange Gold is ran from the Rogers' family
farm overlooking the historic and beautiful Boyne Valley in Co. Meath. John saw an
opportunity to create a brand that connected the rich and ancient soils of the Boyne
Valley and the high-quality food produced there. The birth of Newgrange Gold came
from seeing oilseed rape grown on the Rogers farm leaving in trailers to the local
merchant and from there, the seed was sown for the potential business opportunity
on their doorstep. Today, Newgrange Gold sells a range of products including
rapeseed oil, infused rapeseed oil with garden herbs, chilli & garlic, chilli & lemon, etc.
with its products available in stores nationwide.
