About the Centre
The Centre is housed in a traditional farm building at Low Luckens farm, in north east Cumbria. It opened its doors to the public in November 2000 and is registered as an Industrial & Provident Society for the Benefit of the Community.
The Centre aims to offer school children, young people, the general public, disadvantaged and special interest groups, the opportunity to understand and experience sustainability in farming, food, wildlife conservation and renewable energy.
The Centre is equipped with information, displays and residential accommodation facilities. The Centre is open every day. Visitors are welcome to browse our information boards and leaflets. The Centre can also be used as a venue for meetings.
Day or residential visitors can use the Centre as a base to both enjoy and learn from the farm's 225 acres of organically managed farmland, ancient woodland and river habitats.
