Duck is a delicious meat that is even tastier when the bird has been allowed to have a happy life as nature intended. Our ducks here at Marsh farm, Bude are brought to us as day old chicks and are specifically chosen for their high meat content without too much fat.
The breed selection is very important because the duck needs to be deliciously mouth watering on arrival to the customer. The ducklings are raised on the farm from then on so they never leave the farm until they are bought as a wonderfully prepared oven ready duck.
This is quite something these days because usually meat is moved around for different purposes before it reaches the consumer. The ducks enjoy a natural and healthy lifestyle and are raised in small family orientated groups. They are fed on a clean diet of cereal based food that is free from GM products,artificial additives and antibiotics.
As there are no growth promoters present the ducks are allowed to grow at their own pace so this allows them to grow to full maturity therefore creating a tasty and well established delicious flavour to the meat.
