Hello Neighbours!

With cooler temperatures, thoughts of cozy dinners and comfort food can’t help but seep into our kitchens this Fall.

At the duck farm, some of our family favourites include: duck pot pies, duck meat loaf, and confit duck among a huge selection of duck appetizers and entrees. We often have new visitors comment “I have been driving by for years and have never stopped in” so we’d like to say…

DO DUCK IN! Our farm store is open 7 days a week and there are always recipes and delicious advice available.

Never tried duck? Here is a fun and easy to serve idea for Fall:
