2014 has also seen our first attempt at raising meat ducks for market. Specifically, we are raising the Muscovy breed. These guys (and gals) were raised on pasture, fed only non-GMO grains, and were eventually turned out to the pond where they forage for all their food. Customer response so far has been enthusiastic. We have a few folks who are going a nontraditional route and putting a duck or two on their holiday table in lieu of a turkey. Processed on-farm.
Price is $6.00/lb. Weights range from 4 to 4.5 lbs. for the females and 7 to 8 lbs. for the males.
