About this Cut

Our boneless duck breasts come from ducks raised cage-free, in open barns, on a vegetarian grain diet, with no added antibiotics or growth hormones. Our ducks are air chilled which sears in its natural juices, tenderizing the meat and eliminates the need for chilled chlorinated water that most producers use. Duck breast offers a distinct taste profile that is rich, succulent, and quite flavorful. It is slightly gamey with a hint of sweetness. The skin becomes nice and crispy when seared, adding to the complexity of flavor and texture. Our duck is of premium quality and definitely something everyone should try.

Cooking Method: Score the skin, season, then start skin-side down in a cold pan and slowly raise heat to render fat. Finish in the oven if desired.

Recommended Temperature: 135°F (57°C) for medium-rare.

Free-range Duck

All of our ducks are raised 100% free range. Free-range duck is raised with the freedom to roam outdoors, which not only enhances the quality of life for the animal but also benefits the flavor and nutritional value of the meat. These ducks typically have access to a more natural diet, resulting in a richer, more robust flavor compared to conventionally raised birds. The increased activity levels help develop firmer, leaner meat with a better texture. Additionally, free-range farming practices are often associated with higher animal welfare standards. Choosing free-range duck supports sustainable farming methods, providing a healthier and more environmentally friendly option.

Antibiotic and Hormone Free Duck

All of our ducks are raised without the use of any hormones or antibiotics.  This practice ensures that the meat is as natural as possible, reducing consumer exposure to these substances. The absence of antibiotics in the raising of these animals helps prevent the development of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, a significant benefit for public health. Additionally, hormone-free meat often has better taste and quality. By choosing antibiotic and hormone-free meat, consumers support more natural animal husbandry practices and contribute to a healthier environment, while also enjoying safer and more flavorful meat.

Vegetarian Fed Duck

All of our duck is raised strictly on a diet that excludes animal byproducts, consisting only of grains, seeds, soy, and legumes. This type of feed ensures that the poultry does not ingest any fish meal or other meat-derived substances, which can affect the flavor and purity of the meat. Poultry fed on a vegetarian diet often produces meat that is leaner and has a cleaner, milder taste, free from any off-flavors sometimes associated with non-vegetarian feeds. This feeding practice prioritizes animal welfare and prevents the addition of any antibiotics and hormones present in animal-based feeds.

Air-Chilled Duck

All of our duck is air-chilled, which refers to a method where individual birds are cooled using cold air, instead of the traditional water chilling. This process minimizes the absorption of water, preventing dilution of the chicken’s natural flavor and resulting in a firmer, more textured meat. Air chilling also enhances the skin’s ability to crisp up when cooked, making it ideal for roasting or frying. Additionally, because there’s no water absorption, the natural flavor of the duck is more pronounced and the meat is typically more tender. Air-chilled poultry is also considered more hygienic and environmentally friendly, as it reduces water usage and potential cross-contamination in the chilling process.
