Pasture raised duck

Juicy and decadent, deep in flavor and color, unforgettably savory—there’s nothing quite like duck. We’ve spent months tending our beloved white Pekin ducks, giving them fresh water to bathe in and plenty of green plants to devour, and they’re ready to be the pièce de résistance of your holiday feast.

What you’re getting

Approx. 5-6.5 lb

Note: If you would like your duck to be a certain size, please ask in the Special Instructions section when placing your order. We’re happy to customize where possible. As always, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Cooking tips

Cooking duck is a different experience than chicken, pork or beef—but don’t let that scare you. It’s simple and forgiving. As long as you plan ahead and take a few steps to ensure the fat is rendered and the interior done, your duck will turn out splendidly. Here’s a simple tutorial for a holiday-worthy roast duck.

If you’re already familiar with preparing conventionally raised duck, don’t worry: cooking pasture raised duck is just as easy. It doesn’t require special cooking techniques.

How we raise our ducks

Like all the animals at Moving Feast Farm, our ducks spend their lives out in the open pasture, nibbling grasses, seeds, and bugs to their hearts’ content. We provide them with a peanut-based feed and—essential for ducks—pools of fresh water they can splash and bathe in. Our fall 2023 batch has been free-ranging in the woods for the last month or two of their lives, harvesting the acorn crop for us. For more details about our animal husbandry, see Our Standards.
