We raise the White Pekin duck breed only. We do not raise Muscovy or Moulard for Foie Gras. We do not produce foie gras, as we believe it goes against the core principles of animal well being in our Trident Stewardship program. Our White Pekin ducks originate from the original Long Island Pekin ducks brought over to the US from China in the 1800s.
All of our ducks are raised in climate controlled barns with windows that have access to the outside air. We do not raise our ducks in a free range or open water environment because they are at great risk for predators. We also want to ensure they eat and drink the healthiest food & water possible, and they will forage anything they find outside on the ground. Ducks are also much more likely to catch diseases outside, especially in large pools of water. Additionally, during the harsh Indiana winters, we do not want the ducks exposed to extreme weather conditions. We want protect our ducks from all of these threats to ensure they are as happy and as healthy as they can be.
Our ducks eat an all-natural diet of corn, wheat and soybeans and other essential vitamins and minerals. We buy the corn and soy used in our duck feeds from local farmers. Our ducks are not fed antibiotics, hormones, steroids, animal proteins or any growth promotants.
