Based in the beautiful New Forest National Park in Hampshire, Southern England, Flood Street Farm is an ancient farm that dates back to the Elizabethan era.
I’m Abby and I live here with my husband Paul and our two young daughters, Ophelia and Cressida (our budding future farm hands!).
We focus on breeding the very best quality rare breed sheep and poultry, which I enjoy showing at local, county and national shows. As a life-long veggie and passionate animal-lover, everything that is bred on the farm is free range and either stays on the farm or goes to new pet homes. All our animals have the very best care, feed and quality of life, this is of utmost importance to me.
This is me, Abby, with one of my very first sheep, a Wiltshire Horn. This was the very beginning of the flock!
The Perfect Smallholder & Pet Breeds
Critically Rare North Ronaldsay Sheep
All of the breeds have been carefully chosen because I believe they are some of the very best rare breeds of sheep, chicken, ducks, geese & fowl to make great pets on smallholdings and in gardens, both for individuals and for families.
To make the grade, the breeds must have a combination of being an easy, manageable size, a naturally healthy breed and have a docile, friendly disposition, not to mention being beautiful to look at… These attributes make them, in my experience and opinion, the perfect smallholder and pet breeds.
I've also mostly chosen breeds featured in the Rare Breed Survival Trust’s (RBST) watchlist as I want to help increase numbers of, whilst maintaining or improving their quality, of some of the rarest breeds of sheep and poultry in this country, and indeed the world.
