Texel’s landscape

In Texel, you will immediately notice the many sheep pastures. Sheep and lambs graze off the grass growing from the silty soil. The various pastures in which they graze are separated by grassy earthworks. These are unique in Holland and are maintained by the farmers of Texel.

Unique taste

Texel lambs spend 100 days in the pastures, where they can freely skip around, drink their mothers’ milk and graze. These great living conditions determine their taste. Lovers of lamb come to this island just to taste it in the restaurants and, in many cases, to take some home as well.
