Farmers, of courseIn our company we work as naturally as possible. This means that the ram can still be a real ram and visits the sheep. No artificial insemination, but the real deal. Where possible, we limit the use of antibiotics. Pregnant sheep are in the stable, but our other animals enjoy walking in the open air. Because sheep prefer to be outside. With us they get the space on the 42 hectares of grassland that we have available for our sheep. Some of our sheep graze in nature reserves. Always something to doA visit to Texel sheep farm is highly recommended for young and old. You don't have to get bored with us. In addition to sheep, our farm also has dwarf goats, chickens, pigs, ducks, rabbits, ponies and even a donkey.
