Texel Breed Texel Breed
 

Texels are lean and well muscled meat sheep, hardy and easy to handle. We dont vaccinate or mulse our sheep as its just not necessary for the Texel Breed when managed in a biological and organic system.

The Texel breed originates from the Isle of Texel off the coast of the Netherlands. Mark's father first saw Texels in the UK in the 80's and wanted to use the Texels as soon as the breed was introduced to Australia.

Our first embryos were born to surrogate ewes in April 1994 and our Texel stud was born. We became one of the early members of the Australian Texel Stud Breeders Association.

Our Soil Our Soil
 

Heathy sheep come from healthy soil.

Our love of the land has been refocussed to the love of the soil. With the help of many Australian and international soil guru's we've had our eyes opened to a whole new world of soil, earth and landscape. With our greater awareness and understanding of soil, the health of our sheep have gone from strength to strength.

Maintaining the integrity of our soil requires us to focus on all of natures cycles, one of the benefits of the Texels cloven hooves is they disturb the soil and their manure acts as a fertiliser. Soil disturbance is a holistic farming tool and animals are an important link in maintaining a healthy landscape.

Breaking Down The Husk Breaking Down The Husk
 

We avoid feeding our sheep grain whenever possible. However, if nature does not allow for healthy grazing pastures, we grow and sprout our own grain so that the sheep can access nutrients otherwise difficult to obtain.

Family Farming Family Farming
 

Lyndale Park has been family held since before land titles were created. Mark is the 5th generation on our family farm at Marong, just west of Bendigo and Helen was brought up on her family's farm (4th generation) in the west Wimmera. We aim to continue improving and enhancing what nature has provided for us and hope those who follow us will do likewise.

Grass Fed Is Best Grass Fed Is Best
 

Grazing is the preferred option for sheep and cattle. The best and most natural food source is grass grown in well mineralised, healthy soils. Our passion for the soil ensures our sheep enjoy the most nutritious grazing grass for most of the year. During the dry season they are fed hay and silage grown on our property.

Shanks comfortably feed 2 adults and 2 children. Use loin chops in this to make enough to feed 4-6 adults osso bucco style.

Legs (small) as a roast for 6 and maybe leftovers for sangas/wraps.

Diced lamb is a combination of leg and shoulder and is ideal for curries, kebabs and fajitas.

Boned & rolled leg roast - easily serve 10 adults with roasted or stir fried vegies, a side of cous cous, or served as souvlaki with salad in wraps.

Mini rump, round & mini topside roasts - quick roast dinners although each cut would serve 2 - 3 people.

Silverside roast needs a slower, gentle cooking - perhaps marinated and then slowed cooked or casseroled.
