Texel sheep

at De Waddel

Sheep farm De Waddel  

Near the Hoge Berg is a sheep farm called De Waddel, run by Jan-Willem Bakker and his family. On the sheep farm they milk the sheep, make sheep's cheese and breed sheep. Did you know that the sheep on petting zoo De Krim Natuuravontuur also come from sheep farm De Waddel?

In the shoes of a sheep farmer

Would you like to walk in the shoes of a sheep farmer? Then this is the ultimate activity for your family (max 5 pers.). Start the day with a cup of coffee and a work meeting, after which you will take the quad to the Hoge Berg. Once there, the farmer will tell you something about the surroundings and you will go out to feed the sheep, pigs and chickens. To finish off, you will (try to) milk the goats and of course you can taste this freshly pressed milk.

An educational walk

During a walk past the sheep and lambs, the farmer will tell you interesting stories about being a farmer. You will walk along tuunwallen and kolken and enjoy the beautiful view of the area at the top of the Hoge Berg. At the end you will have a drink together in the sheepfold.
