​The Wiston flock of Dutch Texels was established in 1987 with the purchase of four females and one ram lamb.  From 1992 onwards all additions to the flock came exclusively from top breeders in the Netherlands. Wiston Texels are one of the oldest pedigree flock in the country breeding only pure Dutch Texels. Over the years the flock has become known for the consistency of its breeding. The flock's home is a 45 ha grassland farm on the Essex/Suffolk border in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

My aim is to breed Dutch Texels which perform well; rams that produce an ideal carcass for the commercial market and females that lamb easily. Looks are of course important (females in particular) but even more important is to breed sheep that perform well and are healthy and contented. New stock rams are sourced most years from top Dutch flocks. Selection for replacement females is made only from proven dams. Wiston Texels take part in two sales for pure Dutch Texels:
