OUR SHEEP

We have over 60 Southdown sheep, in the Hill House flock.

This rare breed is indigenous to our part of the world and one of the oldest English sheep breeds in the UK.  Southdown sheep have been grazing the South Downs and the surrounding area for over 200 years. 

We chose to keep this breed of sheep not only because of their heritage, but also because of their docile nature, their small stature and because they are relatively straightforward breed to manage.
