We are animal lovers. We are also omnivores. We believe in knowing where our food comes from and being as accountable as possible. We truly love raising our animals and they in turn have wonderful lives and the quality of our meat and eggs reflects that.

Love to bake? Allergic to chicken eggs? Want the best egg salad? Our duck eggs have rich, dark orange yolks and protein packed whites making them perfect for all your favorite baked goods and more. One duck egg is equal to about 1.5 chicken eggs and has a thick shell that really needs cracking. Our ducks are free to forage all day behind the safety of electric poultry net. Affectionately referred to as “The Quack Ducks” our flock is made up of Indian Runners, Golden 300s, a few heritage breeds and Runner cross mixes. We love watching them waddle and forage in the field, especially on rainy days. Their nighttime coop is rolled every other day so they’re never standing around in their fragrant mess for long. Duck eggs are sold washed in new cartons. Please consider returning your carton to us for reuse! $4.00/ 6-pack, $7.00/doz
Muscovy Duck Meat
Muscovy duck meat is dark red and is lower in fat than the traditional Pekin duck, but still fatty enough to be decadent, tender and delicious. We like to call Muscovy meat the “sirloin” of poultry and our very favorite preparation is pan-seared breasts served with a rich deglazed sauce and side of greens. Delicious! Our ducks are raised on pasture from day one and hatched by their mothers. They are free to forage for bugs and love fresh zucchinis. We keep our birds’ wings pinioned or clipped to prevent flying, ensuring your meat is always tender. We process our birds at 12-15 weeks old and sell them whole. Muscovy drakes are much larger than the female ducks: Dressed ducks weigh in at 3-4 pounds, drakes are 4-7 pounds.
Duck Pricing: Market price: $6.50/pound, Pick up fresh meat on-farm the day of harvest and pay just $6.25/pound with a $10 deposit to reserve your bird. Read more about our bulk discounts at the bottom of the page.
Yes, we sell ducklings! Day old ducklings start at $7.00, butcher aged ducks are $15-30. Inquire for availability.
Freedom Ranger Chickens
Along with our home-bred meats we also raise one batch of Freedom Ranger chickens each summer. Our chicks are purchased from a local hatchery and free range on pasture most of their lives. They spend their first 3 weeks in a dry, heated room in our barn, spend a week or two in a protected ‘tractor’ which is moved every few days, and are then let out to scratch, peck and flap in large electronet pens which are moved every week or so. Our chickens are grown mainly for our freezer but we started raising extra to sell in 2017. We will have around 50 fryers available for sale in 2018, so reserve yours now!
Pricing: Market price: $4.50/pound (if any are left after pre-sales!) $4.25 picked up on-farm with a $10 deposit per bird, up to 4 birds. Pre-order 5 or more birds with a $50 deposit and pay just $4.00/pound.
Rabbit is a wonderful option for folks looking for more variety in their protein choices: it’s lean, high in protein and takes on flavor even better than chicken. We love it grilled on the BBQ but it’s also great in stews or with a decadent French-style mustard sauce. We offer our rabbit whole as well as by the cut.
Our rabbits are raised for both show and meat and those who don’t ‘make the cut’ as breeding stock make a delicious choice for your next meal. Interested in raising your own rabbits for meat or show? Learn more about my stock and see current availability for sale animals here.
