The Fallow Deer Society was established to encourage, educate, and support the farming of Fallow Deer in New Zealand.
In the heyday of deer farming, Fallow deer farmers were abundant. There are now fewer farmers concentrating solely on Fallow, but these farmers are passionate about the breed, and its place in New Zealand.
Deer farmers are pioneers of innovation in farming practice. Improved Fallow husbandry, facilities and genetic selection have overcome the early farming problems.
Venison and trophy antlers are the mainstay of Fallow farmer's income. The preservation of Mesopotamian genetics is an ongoing project for dedicated enthusiasts.
Our member base is mainly fallow deer farmers, with a few associated businesses maintaining a membership.
The Fallow Deer Society gives voice to comment on current issues that may affect our farmer members.
This website is a resource for the Fallow Deer farmer or anyone wanting to find out more information about this very specific breed of deer.
