"De Hal" is a traditional texel farmhouse, dating back from the 17th century. Together with the nearby situated, pyramid shaped, Gulf house it has been listed as a national monument.
Together with their two daughters, Jan-Jacob en Patricia live in the old farmhouse. Jacob en Marga Keijser came to live in the gulf house which in the old days was in use as a sheep barn.
Texel is the island of sheep, the island has produced its own breed: The Texel sheep. Sheep breeding is an important part of our farm's business. In march and april (the lamb season) literally hundreds of lambs frolic in the meadows around the house.
Our farm also produces high quality potatoes, corn, sugar beets, onions and grass seeds. Lots of activity around the year!
