Livestock

Here at The Good Life Projects, we don't just sell meat;we also sell livestock - from Day-Old chicks to the occasional Lamb, Pig or Sheep.

At Ham Street Hens we stock an impressive variety of large hybrid and bantam hens as well as a select range of related products, from incredible coops to brilliant feeders and specialist tonics.

Our hens are all fully vaccinated, aged 16-20 weeks of age and available for regular collection from Somerset, Dorset and Hampshire.

We offer FREE friendly but expert before and after sales advice making us the ideal choice for beginners.

We currently have two methods of purchase - a choice of Click and Collect locations detailed below and a delivery service for a small range of non-livestock items. To buy hens choose your preferred location below.

I began my journey in 2015 with 'The Good Life Worshops - for Kids', where we organised and ran growing and conservation workshops for children under 11, not only teaching them and giving them knowledge in growing their own food but also in showing them how to work with and respect nature and the world around them.

Our core belief is that, in order for us to live 'The Good Life', we have to work with nature and ensure its preservation

In 2019 we were presented with the amazing opportunity to use and maintain 12.5 acres of ex-quarry-cum farm land.

Our first project was Livestock. Having never owned my own livestock (beside some chickens in the back yard), my first goal was to run a flock of sheep on the land. We started with 6 Shetland Ewes and these, running with the landlords flock of Black Welsh Mountains, gave us a good feel of how to manage livestock. The sheep, in truth, became our teachers. They taught us how they manage the grasses and hedgerows, and how easily they find a gap in the fencing.

With conservation, preservation and sustainability in mind: we, in early 2020, made the decision to concentrate on breeds featured on the RBST watchlist in the hope that, not only will we fulfill our future goals but, will also help in the conservation of at risk breeds; protecting their futures too.
