Field Reared - (not fake “free range”) These birds live in a large open grassland field with duck showers to enjoy. They have houses to go in if they want, but we don’t make them. This enormous level of freedom means healthy happy ducks.
Long Grown - our ducks are grown to 14-16 weeks (double the time of a supermarket duck), which means you get a properly developed bird with good bone structure and flavoursome meat.
Top Quality Feed - our ducks are fed on top quality feed from the local feed mill and they forage the field for all that is available there. It is more expensive to produce them this way but it means the meat you eat has been grown from good quality nutrients.
Processed on site - this eliminates travel and therefore minimises stress on the birds and also reduces our carbon footprint. By processing the ducks ourselves we can ensure that we maintain the highest possible standards of care and quality.
Dry Plucked (not scalded or bleached) we individually dry-pluck our ducks. It takes longer but it means you get a better bird which has not been through a polluting industrial process. The skin will crisp up better, it will taste better and it will be better for you.
Game Hung - we game hang our ducks. This improves the flavour and texture of the meat.
