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.
