Low Luckens Organic Resource Centre

Location: Low Luckens Organic Resource Centre, Low Luckens, Roweltown, Carlisle Postcode: CA6 6LJ

The Organic Resource Centre is housed in a traditional farm building at Low Luckens farm. The Centre aims to provide the link between people and the food they eat as well as promoting conservation, sustainability, nature and wildlife. We offer a wide range of experiences including opportunities to find out about where food comes from, to value and enjoy the natural environment, to discover local heritage and traditions and to work together.

The Centre is equipped with information, displays and residential accommodation facilities. Day or residential visitors can use the Centre as a base to both enjoy and learn from the farm's 220 acres of organically managed farmland, ancient woodland and river habitats. The farm produces organic beef.
