The breed of Lamb we mainly use are Texels. The Texel sheep originated on the isle of Texel, the largest of the Wadden Islands off the north coast of the Netherlands. It is a breed that is of outstanding carcass quality. We mostly have cross-bred Texel sheep that have been crossed with native breeds such as a Suffolk or a Beltex giving them a full flavour and great meat to bone ratio..
