Our purchase of Tandarra came with 30 Texel Ewes, chosen by the previous owners for their strong birthing and mothering traits and high-quality meat. This choice did not disappoint. Lambs were successfully birthing our first weekend on Tandarra and the first tasting of our home grown meat forever converted us on the benefits of grass fed paddock to plate produce. The lamb just melted in your mouth and we realised just what poor quality “Lamb” is sold through retail channels.
Texels are low fat high muscle breed.
A secondary benefit of Texels is their dual purpose of also providing fleece and sheepskins. Their strong wool is used for blankets, rugs and carpet and the lower micron lamb’s wool produces beautiful lambskin rugs.

We now run over 100 sheep, covered by three registered purebred texel rams, a nice mix of cross-bred and purebred.
