Texel barbecue at the sheep fine

In the middle of the country you can enjoy Texel lamb and other products from the farm and from the island. During the walk, Jan-Willem tells about the farm and the environment and how the sheep occupy him all year round. He also talks about Dapper, an initiative with which he works together with other farmers on Texel to make the landscape more sustainable and to promote biodiversity. And of course he and his team are your host at the barbecue. Times: from 6 pm to 9 pm. Cost: € 45.00 for adults and € 15.00 for children (this includes three non-alcoholic drinks and donation for the landscape).

Schapenbedrijf De Waddel

Schapenbedrijf De Waddel

At De Waddel cloche farm (from 1625) at the foot of the Hoge Berg, they have a farm shop and fresh and frozen vending machines where raw milk sheep's cheese and lamb are sold. There are also all kinds of fun and educational activities, such as guided tours, tastings and knapsack tours. You can also join the farmer once to feed the sheep. During the activities you can enjoy the sheep and the iconic landscape De Hoge Berg. This sloping area, with garden walls, gullies and sheep sheds, is the oldest part of Texel. At De Waddel they love this landscape and it is natural for them to take good care of it. Moreover, they work in a nature-inclusive way and as circular as possible. The sheep are outside all year round and the lambs are raised with their mothers. Some of the sheep are milked from May to October. They make sheep's cheese from the milk in the traditional way. De Waddel is affiliated with Slow Food, a worldwide organization that is committed to preserving traditional cuisine and a good, clean and fair food system.
