Lackan Cottage Farm

Not far from here there is an amazing place.

Steve and Claire at Lackan Cottage Farm near Ballyroney are on a wonderful journey, rejuvenating an abandoned smallholding in the heart of the Mournes Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, creating a permaculture smallholding, low impact home and Eco teaching centre. 

We went down with Eleanor this morning. It is a delight and inspiration! 

You can get involved and help too, by supporting with the build of the eco classroom - for you help you will be well rewarded!
