Crescent Duck Farm has been raising Pekin ducks since 1908, when Henry Corwin started farming twenty-five acres of land in Aquebogue, Long Island. Over the last five generations, Crescent has sustained its reputation as one of the absolute finest and most principled duck producers in the United States. This whole duck is fresh, plump, succulent, and loaded with rich, versatile fat.
Though perhaps not what it’s known for, Long Island is wonderfully suited to raising ducks. With sandy soils, ample natural water, and a relatively humid climate, descendants of late-nineteenth century Chinese Peking Ducks have always thrived in this area. At Crescent Farm, this natural predisposition is paired with rigorous and thoughtful care for the birds. They are fed a hormone and steroid-free diet of corn, wheat, and soybeans, receiving attention throughout the day while they roam freely in large, open areas. All of these efforts have assured that Crescent Pekin Ducks are a mainstay among the finest restaurants in the country, regardless of cuisine.
