Farm and Garden
Our urban farm at Kilcreggan Homes Ltd is known locally as a best kept secret in Carrickfergus, a popular attraction to local families and visitors from around Northern Ireland and beyond.
The farm was established thanks to the idea of one of our tenants, Linda Bennett, she loves animals and knew that spending time caring for animals and in nature made her feel good and improved her life – she knew others could benefit too and so began the creation of a much-loved community space were our service users can engage in therapeutic activities and demonstrate their skills, passion and knowledge for what they do with visitors and guests.
What has emerged from the small seed planted 20 years ago is a visitors attraction, a relaxed community space that operates as a social firm, engaging services users in all aspects of running a busy and successful garden centre and urban farm.
Groups, individuals and families can visit for free to see up close our popular pet goats, pigs, pony, poultry, waterfowl, geese and small pets.
