These pasture-raised White Pekins are plump, delectably fatty, and incredibly sweet. To say it bluntly, Farmer Joe is delivering the best whole ducks we have ever tasted.
The Pekin Duck, also known as the Long Island Duck, is a migratory species that was originally bred in China, descending from wild Mallards. Over the years, their breeding has been refined to produce smaller and plumper birds with mild, sweet, and tender flesh.
These ducks are raised on an organic pasture where they roam freely, eating grass, grubs, and bugs in the soil, balanced their diet with a locally grown and processed non-GMO feed. From the very beginning, Farmer Joe has emphasized sustainable, humane practices that benefit health for the animals, sustainability for the earth, and excellence for consumers. Joe practices rotational grazing, frequently moving the animals to new pasture, giving the land rest and time for regrowth. The benefits of this and like minded practices are immediately apparent in the quality of meat, and we are certain you will agree upon trying for yourself.
